Stabbed for seeking asylum
Last weekend, teenage Iranian-Kurdish asylum seeker Reker Ahmed was attacked near his home in Croyden, South London. Its believed around 20 people took part in the attack, and he is very lucky to be alive. It shows the kind of violence that constant media and government attacks on asylum seekers and minorities is breeding.
