Failed bomb attacks ‘hurt Islam’

The failed bomb attacks on London and Glasgow have damaged public perceptions of Islam, a survey has suggested. An opinion poll shows that 71% of people questioned thought the abortive attacks gave Islam a bad name. The research was carried out for the religious research organisation Theos and saw 1,000 people questioned. Iraqi doctor Bilal Abdullah, 27, has been charged in connection with the car bomb attempts in London and the attack on Glasgow airport.
