Muslims insult returning British Troops
About 20 men held up banners and placards reading: "Anglian Soldiers Butchers of Basra", and "Baby killers." The 2nd Battalion of the Royal Anglian Regiment, returning from their second tour in Iraq, encountered the group shouting "Terrorists" and "Anglian Soldiers Go to Hell", outside Luton Town Hall.
As the parade by the 200 soldiers and a military band finished in St George's Square, police forced the protesters into a small area by the Arndale Shopping Centre to keep them apart from a large number of locals, some waving Union and St George's flags and shouting: "Scum" and "No surrender to the Taliban." The two groups yelled insults as police dogs and riot vans were called to the scene.
