A teenage girl was arrested Wednesday in the UK on suspicion of inciting religious hatred after she allegedly burned a version of the Koran, filmed the act, and posted the footage on Facebook, reported the Guardian citing police sources.

The 15-year-old was questioned and bailed by investigators last Friday after the incident, which took place at a school in the West Midlands.

Police also arrested a 14-year-old boy on suspicion of making threats on Facebook in connection with the alleged incident. He was released on bail, according to spokeswoman for West Midlands police.
