Birmingham holds peace rally to protest deaths of 3 men protecting shops from looters
LONDON (AP) ' Scores of people are peacefully protesting in England's second-largest city against the hit-and-run attack that claimed three lives during rioting in Birmingham.
Community groups in Birmingham are staging a peace rally Sunday in Winson Green, where Haroon Jahan, 20, and brothers Shazad Ali, 30, and Abdul Musavir, 31, were mowed down and mortally wounded when a car struck them at high speed. The trio had been with a larger group guarding a row of Pakistani-owned shops from looters.
Two males have been charged in the attack. Joshua Donald, 26, and a 17-year-old whose name was withheld because of his age were arraigned Sunday at Birmingham Magistrates Court on three counts each of murder.
