Race Riots in Birmingham, UK
« on: October 25, 2005, 02:51:53 PM »
The story started when a pirate radio station DJ aired that a 14 year old black girl had allegedly been gang raped by 19 Asian (pakistani) men in a beauty shop near to the Lozells area.

Anger mounted and a public picket outside followed. By the weekend, with no victim having come forward, the mood was sufficiently heated for the police to try to start calming things down.

But by Saturday night, violence hit Lozells' streets as gangs took matters into their own hands. Young black men attacked Asian businesses; Asian youths attacked the black men; both gangs had a go at the police.

Who killed Isiah Young-Sam, a city council IT analyst returning home from the cinema, remains unclear as the police have not publicly confirmed the ethnicity of the mob behind the vicious stabbing.

After a second night of trouble saw more tension (and a fatal shooting that may or may not be related), the police swamped Lozells on Monday to stamp out the trouble.

The DJ who aired the rape allegation has kept quiet. The woman screening his calls told the BBC News website that he had only sought to do the right thing.

Ajaib Hussein, the owner of the beauty parlour at the centre of the allegation, has denied the claims and said his business is the victim of a plot by rivals.
