Racial Attack on Hanley Mosque.
A Very Public Sociologist has a terribly disturbing post, Shelton Mosque Attack and Racist Violence:
“At work this afternoon I heard there had been an attempt to blow up the new Shelton Mosque near Hanley in Stoke-on-Trent. According to the mosque committee, the police, and the local paper, the perpetrators tapped a gas main and fed a pipe into the mosque before attempting to ignite it. Needless to say the damage done to the building as well as nearby residences could have been catastrophic. Understandably the police are treating the attempted attack as a racist incident.”
Update 1: Highland Host a local blog also has a post on it.
