Sun article against Muslim Channel 4 News host triggers 300 complaints
The press regulator has received more than 300 complaints about an article by the Sun columnist Kelvin Mackenzie, in which he suggested that an award-winning journalist should not have been allowed to present a news programme featuring a report of last week's mass killings in Nice because she is a Muslim and wears the hijab.
Mackenzie, also the paper's former editor, said in in his column on Monday: "I could hardly believe my eyes" when Fatima Manji appeared onscreen during the Channel 4 News programme on Friday.
"Was it appropriate for her to be on camera when there had been yet another shocking slaughter by a Muslim?" he wrote on Monday.
