LONDON – Four teenagers have been arrested in connection with a fire at an Islamic boarding school in London, police said Monday, as they stepped up patrols around Muslim sites in the capital.
The blaze was the second suspicious fire at an Islamic institution in London following the brutal May 22 killing of a soldier near his barracks in Woolwich. Two converts to Islam have been charged with the murder.
A blaze was reported late Saturday at the Darul Uloom Islamic High School in the southeast London suburb of Chislehurst. The fire caused minor damage to a building at the school and 128 pupils and staff were evacuated.
