A fire that happened at a centre in London is being investigated by police. This relates to the Islamic centre which is situated in north London.
The fire at the centre, which is located in Muswell Hill, is being treated as suspicious the Metropolitan Police has said as reported by the BBC.
It has been reported that there was no injuries as a result of the blaze but that one individual was treated for shock.
It is believed that there was graffiti on the building, with the letters EDL being written there.
Kevin Carroll, who is from the English Defence League (EDL) said they “do not approve of any religious buildings being attacked”.
Abu Bakar Ali, of the centre, said: “The Somali community is in fear.
Adding: “We are appalled and deeply saddened by the horrific and foolish act against a peaceful community. While no-one was thankfully physically hurt in the attack, the effects of this crime will be felt very deeply.”
Chief Superintendent Adrian Usher said: “I have spoken to community leaders and assured them that a thorough investigation is being conducted.
“The safety of our communities is always our priority and we are consulting widely, offering our support and reassurance.”
The centre is used by the Somali Bravanese Welfare Association.
