The British Police have arrested two men on suspicion of “racially aggravated criminal damage” after windows at five mosques in Britain’s second city Birmingham were smashed earlier this week.
A 34-year-old man handed himself into a police station and a 38-year-old was “detained by members of the community,” West Midlands Police said in a statement.
“This is a significant step forward in our enquiries. However, the investigation continues into the motive for the incidents,” Assistant Chief Constable Matt Ward said.
“It remains incredibly important that we unite together against those who seek to create discord, uncertainty and fear,” he added.
