Five held in London over 'Muslim vigilante' videos
Five men have been arrested in London after videos emerged of a self-styled "Muslim patrol" whose members abused passers-by for being gay, drinking alcohol or wearing mini-skirts, police said Friday.
The amateur footage was taken on the streets of east London, an area with a high concentration of Muslims, earlier this month and uploaded onto YouTube.
The East London Mosque in Whitechapel has condemned those responsible, saying they were a "tiny minority" whose actions were "utterly unacceptable and clearly designed to stoke tensions and sow discord".
