A man stabbed to death on his doorstep in front of his young daughter had been sent a threatening letter, according to police.

Devout Muslim and community leader Salik Choudhury, 64, informed police that he had received the letter eight months ago.

The father of six was stabbed in the stomach in front of his seven-year-old daughter and nephew at his home in East Ham, east London on Sunday at 1730 BST.

He was taken to the Royal London Hospital, in Whitechapel, east London, but later died.

Scotland Yard has confirmed it is also linking a series of incidents at Forest Gate Mosque in east London, where Mr Choudhury was secretary, with his death.

A police spokesman said: "Police are aware of a series of incidents ranging from public disorder to minor allegations of crime in connection with members of the mosque.

"This will also form part of the murder investigation."
