The national head teachers' group expressed "serious concerns" about an alleged plot by Islamists to control education in a number of Birmingham schools. Ofsted, which oversees UK schools, and Birmingham authorities are conducting parallel investigations. Ofsted is now looking at 21 Birmingham schools; and schools in Bradford, Manchester, and east London are alleged to have similar problems. Two female football fans were fined for ripping up pages of the Koran at a Birmingham football match. Lawyers for escaped terror suspect Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed and another suspected Shabaab member identified as C.F. won an appeal against control orders.
