Fury over killer's release from prison

A man who killed eight people in an arson attack in Huddersfield has been released from prison on parole - after serving just half of his 18 year sentence.

Nazar Hussain was one of three men jailed for their part in a petrol bombing at the home of the Chishti family in Birkby a decade ago, as Michael Billington reports.

A man who killed eight people in an arson attack in Huddersfield ten years ago has been freed from prison. Nazar Hussain was one of a gang who petrol bombed the home of the Chishti family in Birkby.

The decision to release him just half-way through his 18-year sentence has been condemned by both survivors and relatives of those who died. He has been released on licence after a Parole Board review - despite vehement objections being lodged with the board.
