Islamophobia warning comes as UK police step up patrols after New Zealand terror attack Muslim leaders in the UK have called on the government to redouble its efforts to ensure the country’s mosques are protected in the wake of the shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand, as they said worshippers attending Friday prayers would be doing so in the face of “unabated Islamophobia”. The warning came as British police stepped up patrols in Muslim areas and around places of worship in direct response to the terrorist attack, in which at least 49 people were killed and 48 injured. About 100 counter-terrorism investigations are already under way to thwart extreme rightwing terror plots in Britain and those who might help them, the Guardian understands.
