by Anna Hitchings
Liverpool Muslim leaders have defended their decision to auction a flag associated with the Islamic State to raise funds for a mosque.
Markaz Imam Ahmad (MIA) mosque spokesman Mohamed Rima said there was nothing sinister about the public auction. A painting of the flag was also sold at the auction.
"It was to fundraise to purchase the building that we're in," Mr Rima said.
