Muslims to honour UK war dead


A group of Muslim women from around the country will be laying a wreath later this week at the National Memorial Arboretum, to show their solidarity and support for troops.

The women say they were motivated by their revulsion at the Islamist extremist demonstration in Luton last year and the threats to disrupt commemorations at the repatriation of dead service personnel at Wooton Bassett.

Zubeida Malik spoke to one of the women organising the commemoration.
