Muslims face blame after UK abuse scandal

The abuse of 1,400 children by men of mainly Pakistani origin has led some to blame the entire Muslim community.

    More than 1,400 children were abused by organised gangs in the UK town of Rotherham.

    Many of those who committed the abuse were of Pakistani origin.

    Despite the Muslim community condemning their actions, some right-wing groups continue to blame them.
