Muslim graves smashed by vandals in Manchester

Up to 20 Muslim graves have been targeted and vandalised at a cemetery in south Manchester.

The vandals struck at the Southern Cemetery on Barlow Moor Road overnight on Thursday. Staff found the Muslim section of the cemetery littered with broken headstones on Friday morning.

Det Con Rob Southern said: “Sadly, we are treating this as a hate crime. This sort of mindless, racist behaviour must be utterly condemned.”

Police appealed to anyone who has information to come forward.
