Report: Three quarters of anti-Muslim attacks are online

A report into anti-Islamic attacks in the UK has found that the majority of incidents are taking place online.

Of the 584 incidents recorded between 1 April 2012 and 30 April 2013, three quarters of them occurred online and involved insults, abusive behaviour and threats of offline action.

Researchers also found there was a direct link to far-right groups in almost 70% of reported online incidents, with the English Defence League allegedly being particularly active.
