An Update, The Hanley Mosque Fire.
“TWO men were due to appear in court today accused of starting a fire at a mosque.
Simon Beech, aged 23, and Gareth Foster, aged 28, both from Stoke-on-Trent, have been charged with arson with intent to endanger life following the blaze at the mosque in Regent Road, Hanley on December 3.
Two other men arrested in connection with the incident have been released from their bail without charge.”
There is a suggestion on the web that at least one of them is connected to the English Defence League, I don’t know how true that is, but it seems probable.
Update 1: The Newstatesman has more on the Daily Star and the EDL.
Update 2: Andy looks at the Australian Defence League.
