Sarwar in talks after city bombs

Glasgow MP Mohammed Sarwar has told the prime minister that more must be done to engage young Muslims in mainstream British life.

Mr Sarwar was part of a delegation of senior Muslims who met Tony Blair to discuss the London bombings.
The Labour MP said they were united in the fight against terrorists.

A task force will look at the problem of young Muslims feeling disconnected – a move greeted with scepticism by the Muslim Association of Britain.

Mr Sarwar said the Muslim community in Scotland was in a “state of shock” after the bombings in London.
