A Muslim charity has accused a bank of putting lives at risk for shutting down its account.
The Ummah Welfare Trust based in Bolton has distributed 70 million pounds to projects in 20 countries. It has had a presence in Gaza for the past 10 years.
But the charity has now received a letter from the HSBC to tell them their account is being closed for being beyond the bank's "risk appetite".
