Attack attributed to the EDL
BBC News - Al-Rahma Islamic Centre destroyed in 'racist attack'
An Islamic centre in north London has been destroyed by a fire in an apparent racially motivated attack.
The Met Police said the fire, which happened at the Al-Rahma Islamic Centre in Muswell Hill in the early hours, is being treated as suspicious.
A spokesman said the letters EDL (English Defence League) were sprayed on to the building, used by the Somali Bravanese Welfare Association.
London Mayor Boris Johnson called the attack "cowardly and pathetic".
