Muslim body appeals for release of kidnapped Brits

The head of the Muslim Council of Britain on Friday called for the swift release of British human rights worker Kate Burton and her parents, who were kidnapped in Gaza. "Mrs. Burton, Kate's mother, has been active in the inter-faith movement in the UK and Europe for many years," said Sir Iqbal Sacranie, secretary-general of the council. "The family's abduction and exposure to danger is absolutely unlawful, totally unjustified and counter-productive," he said.
