Europe ‘failing to confront growth in racial violence’

European governments have been accused of complacency and of failing to confront the scale of racist violence after a report by the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia said only a handful of nations collected proper information. There was clear evidence “that attacks on Muslim communities increased in the months following 11 September” and some victims were wrongly identified as Muslims.
