Jeremy Corbyn blasts 'disgusting' Islamophobic hate mail sent to Labour MPs

Labour MP Mohammad Yasin

A fourth package was sent to the Manchester Gorton MP, Afzal Khan, but was not opened, according to the Guardian.

Yasin won his Bedford seat from the Conservatives by 789 votes at the last general election.

A member of Ms Huq's staff was taken to hospital, but was later discharged.

A parliamentary spokesperson said on Tuesday that two items of mail containing suspicious substances were investigated by the Metropolitan Police and were not found to be hazardous.

Two people were taken to hospital as a precaution after a package leaking a suspicious liquid was sent to a Labour MP's office.

Dramatic Video Shows People Try to Stop Driver From Fleeing After Crash
The hit-and-run driver in this video, captured on the scene of a crash in downtown Miami , got a lot more than he bargained for. The video shows the witnesses yelling at the driver to stop, pounding on his auto and trying to open the doors.

Speaking in the House of Commons after hearing news of the incident, Tory MP Michael Fabricant raised fears the package sent to Mr Yasin may be connected to reports anti-Muslim letters have been posted across the country.

Huq confirmed that she had received "the letter that did the rounds at the weekend", adding that it was a "scary experience".

"Tell MAMA documented a year ago how the so-called "Muslim Slayer" targeted mosques in parts of London and the United States in 2017 with similar threats, and in some cases, with non-toxic white powder".

Urging people to join their "day of action" next month the letter reads: "They have hurt you, they have made your loved ones suffer".

"The issue of anti Muslim and far-right extremism is a focus for the government", she said, pointing to the government's anti-radicalisation programme, Prevent, which she said did not focus just on Islamic radicalisation but other forms of extremism, including of the far right. "The police are investigating the content of the letters to identify any potential link".

A second suspicious packaged in as many days has been found at Westminster, with one person hospitalised as a result.

The organization said that some of the letters appear to have been mailed out of Sheffield, the NYT reported.

"The substance contained in it was deemed not to be hazardous to health", a Met police spokesman said on Monday. "The incident, which was contained to one room, has been stood down".
