Guernsey 'Islamophobia' minister apologises for comments
Guernsey's chief minister has apologised for suggesting Islamophobia among its inhabitants was behind a decision not to accept refugees.
Jonathan Le Tocq's original comments, where he expressed fears about negativity and an unwelcoming attitude, prompted a backlash.
States advocate Peter Ferbrache said the remark was "ill-judged" and islanders were "decent people".
