Man admits firebombing mosque
From This is Wiltshire:

MUSLIM leaders say the town's Islamic community should still be alert for backlashes stemming from incidents around the world.

The warning comes after racist firebomber Mark Bulman admitted attacking the Broad Street mosque in August following terror alerts at UK airports in the same month.

The 22-year-old admitted throwing a petrol bomb through the window of the building and daubing swastikas and anti-Islamic abuse on its walls.

Azim Khan, of the Thamesdown Islamic Association, said: "It is a great relief to the whole community that this man's actions have been brought to court and dealt with swiftly, and that his actions were his own and not backed by others or an organisation, as that would be very dangerous.

"But we still have to be alert. If anything happens anywhere in the world, we must consider that we could be a target, even though we have no interest in what goes on elsewhere.
