A mosque has been attacked in Oldham (in Manchester city) just hours after a suicide bomber killed 22 people at the end of a concert in the city’s Manchester Arena.

The Muslim community in Manchester is calling on residents in the city to be careful after the door to the mosque was set on fire in an appalling attack on Tuesday morning.

Images have emerged of a charred door, at the front of Villa Road Mosque, which appears to have been burnt around the letterbox.

The Central Mosque in the Gorbals, Glasgow was also attacked in the early hours, residents say. Graffiti with the word “ISIS” in a love heart was sprayed on the wall of the religious center.
