Security stepped up at UK mosques

Security at vulnerable Islamic sites tightened due to recent rise in anti-Muslim incidents in London.

    UK police are stepping up their presence around mosques after a number of anti-Muslim incidents.

    It follows an arson attack on an Islamic Centre in London last week and a fire at an Islamic boarding school.

    Police are reassuring Muslims that potential targets will be safe, amid allegations they have been too slow to protect the community from attack.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
