Muslim police officers targeted by EDL

Britain’s National Association of Muslim Police (Namp) will deliver a letter to Theresa May, the Home Secretary, stating that its officers have been targeted by radicalised members of the EDL. It details an unresolved investigation of an unidentified man arrested last year with “quantities of fireworks/devices” alongside names of Muslim police officers circled on whiteboards for attacks.

The letter also outlines concerns that EDL leader Stephen Lennon suggested similar events to those witnessed in Norway could be “years away” if his organisation’s concerns were not addressed.
