Woolwich attack prompts fears of backlash against British Muslims
by Sam Jones, Ben Quinn, and Conal Urquhart
The murder of a soldier in south London on Wednesday has prompted fears of a backlash against British Muslims after the English Defence League staged an impromptu rally in the capital and two mosques were attacked.
The BNP leader, Nick Griffin, has also reacted to the killing with provocative tweets calling for a protest in Woolwich and claiming the crime is the result of "mass immigration".
Farooq Murad of the Muslim Council of Britain said the EDL's rally in London on Wednesday night was cause for concern.
