Irish Muslims under threat

Irish mosques and schools have received anonymous letters containing violent threats, the Irish Independent reports.

The letters have been sent in the post and placed on the Internet. They have been described as intimidating and extremely violent, and are said to make specific reference to a planned construction of a mosque in north Dublin.

The Irish police, known as the Gardai, confirm to the Independent that they are investigating a letter sent to the Clonskeagh Mosque.
