Plenty of coverage of the protests on 10 March against returning British soldiers:

The Sun, Hate for heroes, 10 Mar 09 "Fifteen fanatics staged a sickening protest — sanctioned by police — as 200 Royal Anglian troops marched in a welcome home parade."

Daily Mail, Muslim hate preacher ridicules troops abused in anti-war protests - and mocks their dead comrade, 10 Mar 09

alArabiyya, Muslim anger mars UK parade for Iraq troops, 11 Mar 09

Guardian, Muslim group pledges more anti-war protests against soldiers, 11 Mar 09 "One expert on Islamist extremist groups in the UK told the Guardian that the organisation had a core of 30 to 40 people. The name, Ahle Sunnah al Jamah, has several spellings and its closest English translation is "the majority of the Muslims".

"Choudary defended the Luton protests: "If it is unpalatable, they should not go to Iraq. If the British are going to be engaging in torture, killing women and children, that needs to be condemned."

"But Inayat Bunglawala, spokesman for the Muslim Council of Britain, who comes from Luton, said the protesters did not represent British Muslims: "This is al-Muhajiroun remnants – these are known figures who have been long associated with al-Muhajiroun.""
