A shamed solicitor who breached an order when she demanded her dog back from her parents walked free today (tues).

She was hauled before Southwark Crown Court for breaching a non-molestation order granted on behalf of her parents.

Choudary was being interviewed on TV when several of his fellow Sunni marchers attacked local men belonging to the rival Shia sect of Islam, jurors were told.

One of the marchers, 20 year-old Jordan Horner, called one of the Shia men a 'kaffir' - meaning unbeliever - and added: 'Shia's are kaffirs, they are the enemy within, they are evil.'
