Two men have been arrested after a suspected arson attack on a mosque in Grimsby, as the backlash continues against soldier Lee Rigby's murder at the hands of suspected Islamic terrorists.
Police confirmed the arrests after the Grimsby Islamic Cultural Centre was allegedly attacked with petrol bombs on the evening of Sunday 26 May.
According to Humberside police, a fire broke out at the mosque shortly before 10pm, but no one was injured.
The chairman of the mosque, Diler Gharib, was inside the building at the time of the attack. He told the Grimsby Telegraph:
"We had just finished our prayers and were discussing how to thank our neighbours for the support they have shown us over the past few days when we heard a bang and saw fire coming under the door.
"I grabbed a fire extinguisher and put it out and then two more petrol bombs hit the fire escape and the bin so I had to put those out too."
