Rise In Attacks On Muslims After Soldier Murder

Attacks on Muslims have increased sharply after the murder of a soldier in a London street, amid a series of arrests linked to the backlash.

Faith Matters, an organisation that works to reduce extremism, said more than 160 incidents had been reported to its helpline since Drummer Lee Rigby's killing on Wednesday.

That compared to the average of four to eight cases a day reported to the group before the attack.
