Police Enter Mosque in Majorca

Three men were arrested when police entered Palma’s main mosque. Police arrested the mosque’s caretaker and the president of the Muslim Defence League when they attempted to prevent the police entry, saying that the sanctuary of a mosque should be respected in the same was as that of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues. Local Muslims have protested the arrests on the grounds that the police became violent and used force. An internal enquiry is to be launched to establish the happened during the incident.
