London, Nov.12 (ANI): Hate-filled Brit Muslims burned a giant poppy, chanting "British soldiers burn in hell" during yesterday's two-minute silence to honour war dead.
The extremists screamed "British troops are murderers" and "There will be no security for Britain while troops remain in Muslim land", the Daily Express reports.
Calling themselves "Muslims against Crusaders", they clashed with police while 50 members of the English Defence League staged a counter-protest near the Royal Albert Hall in central London.
Police kept the two sides apart. Three men were arrested at the scene - two for public order offences and one for assaulting a police officer.
One officer was taken to hospital with a head injury. The incident left the general public shocked and disgusted. (ANI)
