British extremists force London Legoland to can Muslim fun day
(03-06 20:10)

The Legoland theme park west of London has temporarily closed its hotel after threats from far-right groups forced it to cancel a “Muslim fun day.''
The resort had been booked by the Muslim Research and Development Foundation for about 1,000 families. The decision to cancel Sunday's event and close the hotel was made after the popular attraction received threats via phone calls, emails and social media postings.
“We are appalled at what has occurred, and at the fact that the real losers in this are the many families and children who were looking forward to an enjoyable day out at Legoland,'' the company statement said.
It said a small group had distributed misinformation about the event.—AP
