Two arrested by UK police after facebook video shows Koran burning

Two people in the UK have been arrested for posting a video to social media showing a man burning a Muslim religious text. The video, posted to YouTube and Facebook, shows a tattooed man complaining to the camera that he’s having trouble starting a bonfire, saying, “I’ve been trying to get my poxy fire started for half-hour wondering what sh*t I can get it going with.” The man then shows a paperback copy of the Koran. “And then I found this,” he explains. “And it worked, all I’ve got left is the poxy, sh*tty cover and look, that’s on the fire as well.”He then begins ripping out pages and tossing them into the flames.
The video comes following an investigation from the Press Association that found that Twitter and Facebook had not taken down posts from nationalist group Britain First, which often publishes videos making false claims about immigrants attacking women and police. West Mercia Police arrested the man, 45, from Worcestershire, and a woman, also 45, from Evesham, on suspicion of posting images that may incite racial hatred.
