Two more arrested in 'Muslim patrol' incidents
Detectives investigating a self-styled Muslim patrol gang made two more arrests today. Men aged 25 and 29 are in custody, bringing the number held so far in the investigation to four, a Scotland Yard spokesman said.
Officers are investigating a string of incidents in east London over the weekend of January 12 and 13 where the gang harassed passers-by. A video posted on YouTube showed the gang hurling homophobic abuse at one man, whom the police have asked to come forward.
In the film, they are heard to shout "get out of here you fag... don't stay around here any more". In a second video, also posted online, men from the group in Whitechapel tell another man "no drink in this area, it's a Muslim area" before ordering him to pour out his alcohol.
