Far-right protesters and Muslim worshippers in tense standoff outside London mosque


Around 100 members of Britain First and the English Defence League held a demonstration outside the London Central Mosque and Islamic Cultural Centre near Regent’s Park.

EDL members were heard chanting – to the tune of the Beach Boys’ Sloop John B – “It’s out country, we’re taking it back” as prayers were held.

Radical cleric Anjem Choudary was among those worshipping at the mosque as protesters chanted anti-Islamic messages and wielded banners and placards outside.
