Terror sweep alienates Muslims

The week's news at a glance.

London

More than 250 police officers, some wearing biohazard suits and gas masks, stormed a house in London last week and arrested two brothers on suspicion of terrorism. One of the men, Abul Kahar Kalam, 23, was shot in the shoulder during the predawn raid. The British intelligence service said it had a tip that the house was being used to plan a chemical attack in Britain. But British media reported that no chemicals or other evidence was found. Muslim groups said if the men proved to be innocent, trust in the police would plummet. “We still do not have any idea what evidence the police had to go into this house and almost kill a man,” said community leader Ghayasuddin Siddiqui. “This has raised very many questions.”
