Britain Investigates Hoisting of Hezbollah Flag in Ashura Procession
by Mohammed Al-Shafey
Scotland Yard is currently investigating the appearance of Lebanese so-called Hezbollah flags at a procession of Ashura organized last Wednesday in the British capital.
A spokeswoman from the Scotland Yard told Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper that the investigation was ongoing over the presence of the Lebanese party's flags during the march, which she said "was supposed to be religious and not political."
Several Muslim leaders in Britain condemned the politicization of the procession by raising slogans and chants that were not linked to the annual religious commemoration.
