Anti-terror police have been called in to investigate the murder of Rochdale imam Jalal Uddin.
The investigation into Mr Uddin’s death has been escalated after the discovery of material linked to the Islamic State terror group during a series of raids last week.
One line of inquiry is that Mr Uddin was targeted because he had made efforts to turn youngsters away from radical Islam.
*Mohammed Hussain Syeedy, 21, of Ramsay Street, Rochdale, has been charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder. A 17-year-old and 21-year-old have also been arrested in connection with the attack.
