UK: Five Birmingham mosques attacked with sledgehammer

Five mosques in Birmingham in the West Midlands in the UK had their windows smashed with a sledgehammer, police say, adding that they believe the attacks are likely to be linked, Deutsche Welle reports.

"At the moment we don't know the motive for last night's attacks," Dave Thompson from West Midlands Police said in a statement.

"What I can say is that the force and the Counter Terrorism Unit are working side-by-side to find whoever is responsible," Thompson said.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid called the incidents "deeply concerning and distressing," writing that "hateful behaviour has absolutely no place in our society."
