Anti-gay Muslim cleric's Reading university talk cancelled
A talk by an Islamic cleric who has called for gay people to be punished with death has been cancelled at the University of Reading.
The student-run Muslim Society had organised for Abu Usamah at-Thahabi to speak at an event designed to promote understanding of Islam as a faith.
But the university and society said there was a threat of violence from outside "extremist groups".
