Muslim ex-inmates to get mentors on release
by Catrin Nye
A charity is offering one-to-one support for Muslim criminals on their release from jail in a bid to cut reoffending.
The scheme is being run by Mosaic, which runs programmes to support young Muslims living in deprived areas.

About 12% of inmates in England and Wales are Muslim, compared with 3% of the general population overall.
