Anti-extremism charity sees funding cut in UK

Government cuts funding to successful charity that works with youngsters to get away from violent acts.

    One of the two Woolwich murder suspects, who killed British soldier Lee Rigby a week ago, attended meetings held by a banned group called al-Muhajiroun, which is linked to promoting terrorism.

    Since the killing, the government has announced a new taskforce to stop young Muslims being persuaded to carry out violent acts.

    But one highly successful charity told Al Jazeera that its own programme to get a hold of young muslims before groups like al-Muhajiroun does, has been the victim of financial cutbacks from the government.

    Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports from London.
