Boris Johnson: Children at risk of radicalisation should be in care

Muslim children who risk radicalisation by their parents should be taken into care, Boris Johnson has said.

Writing in his weekly Daily Telegraph column, the London mayor said such children were victims of child abuse.

Mr Johnson said they should be removed from their families to stop them being turned into "potential killers or suicide bombers".

He later told LBC Radio similar action may be considered to deal with extreme race hatred propagated by BNP members.

In his article, he warned that some young people were being "taught crazy stuff" similar to the views expressed by the two men who killed Fusilier Lee Rigby on a south-east London street.
