Hate crimes soar after bombings
This is profoundly depressing:
BBC NEWS | England | London | Hate crimes soar after bombings:
Attacks on Muslims have soared in London since the 7 July bombings, according to police figures.
There were 269 �religious hate� crimes, compared with 40 in the same period last year, the figures show.
Most were verbal abuse or minor assaults, but also include damage to property, including mosques and have a great �emotional impact�, police said.
London’s slowly becoming its old hateful self, isn’t it?
