A 15-year-old girl from Birmingham, UK, has been arrested on suspicion of inciting religious hatred after allegedly burning an English-language version of the Qur’an — and then posting video footage of the act on Facebook.
The incident comes just two and a half months after six people were arrested after filming themselves dousing a Qur’an with fuel and setting it ablaze behind a pub in Tyneside.
