Tower Hamlets mayor Lutfur Rahman sparks more controversy by flying Palestinian flag over town hall
by Alexandra Rucki
The decision to fly the Palestinian flag over a town hall in east London has sparked outrage from campaign groups.
Tower Hamlet's Mayor Lutfur Rahman ordered the flag to be flown from the town hall in Mulberry Place as a symbol of "solidarity with Gaza and in support of a ceasefire and peace."
But the gesture has been condemned by Jewish leaders as "destructive" for community relations and deemed as "inappropriate."
