A young woman heralded for staring down an English Defence League (EDL) activist at a rally by the far-right group has said she was "not scared in the slightest" during the tense confrontation.
Saffiyah Khan came to symbolise resistance to the rally, held in Birmingham on Saturday (8 April), after an image of her appearing to smile at EDL leader Ian Crossland went viral.
The image, taken by Press Association photographer Joe Giddens, was shared across social media and attracted comments from the likes of Birmingham Yardley MP Jess Phillips, while Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan described it as "photo of the week".
But despite the obvious tension between the two people in the picture, Ms Khan told the Mirror she kept calm throughout.
The EDL rally in Centenary Square attracted about 100 supporters and passed without any major disorder, police said.
West Midlands Police said two people, thought to be counter-protesters, had been arrested for alleged breaches of the peace.
