Fears of Sectarian Violence in London as Police Probe Attack on Shia Muslim
by Timur Moon
Anti-terrorism police are investigating claims of sectarian violence between Shi'ite and Sunni Muslims after an Iraqi refugee was attacked in a suspected hate crime in central London.
Five men have been arrested following the attack, which took place in Edgware Road on 10 May after a rally against the Syrian regime, where radical cleric Anjem Choudary was a speaker.
SO15, the Metropolitan Police's counter-terrorism branch, has been drafted in to conduct the investigation into violent disorder and suspected grievous bodily harm.
