Muslim Group Cancels Wootton Bassett March
by Adam Arnold
Muslim group Islam4UK has cancelled controversial plans to hold an anti-war march through Wootton Bassett - the town which honours repatriated British soldiers.
The Islamic organisation's proposals had received widespread criticism, with more than 185,000 people signing up to a Facebook page opposing the plans.
MPs had urged local authorities and the Home Secretary Alan Johnson to step in to prevent the procession in the Wiltshire town.
And Prime Minister Gordon Brown condemned the proposed march as "abhorrent and offensive."
