More than a hundred people have attended an interfaith event in Cardiff, aimed at tackling extremism in society.

Organisers of the Interfaith Peace Symposium said they wanted to promote shared values across all faiths and help bring communities closer together.

The peace conference is one of many being held across the UK, hoping to show that conversation can help prevent extremism.

It is a message also being reflected in Amazon's Christmas advert this year, which shows the friendship between a priest and an imam.

In the advert, the two friends - who share the same problem of pain from kneeling down - both order a surprise gift of a set of knee pads for each other.

Zubeir Hassam, who stars in the advert, says it has a positive message.
