Two people hospitalised after suspicious package found near Parliament

UK Two in hospital after suspicious package at Muslim MP office

A Parliamentary spokesman said: 'The Met Police are now investigating suspicious items of mail in Norman Shaw North.

Two unidentified people were taken to hospital as a precaution following Monday's suspicious package report.

Labour MP for Walthamstow, Stella Creasy, said she found out that some of her constituents had received the letters on Friday evening while helping others report anti-Semitic graffiti.

The spokesman said there were no reported injuries and inquiries were continuing.

The images on the letters suggest they may have been sent by mysterious "Last Soldiers of Christ" group.

In response to the urgent question on the letters, UK Home office minister Victoria Atkins told MPs that the government condemns the content of the letters as "clearly abhorrent, with no place in decent society".

The package contained a "low-level noxious substance", while the letter is a form one which encourages everything from verbal attacks on Muslims in the street to mosque bombings.

In contrast, "Pence didn't back down and that sets a good standard", Showalter opined . The controversial remarks were made on " The View " by Behar on February 13.

The police is concerned that this parcel is part of a possible coordinated campaign, referring to the anonymous letters calling to "Punish a Muslim" on April 3rd.

The package is being assessed by specialist officers, according to the police.

Meanwhile four Muslim Labour MPs have been sent suspicious packages in the last 48 hours, including the letter advocating violence against Muslims.

"I have been contacted by a number of people who are anxious about the racist literature that was sent to my office today", Yasin wrote on Facebook. On Monday, two staff members from Yasin's office had also been briefly hospitalised as a precautionary measure.

"These letters are nothing short of a sick and cowardly attempt to divide our communities", Labour's Rosena Allin-Khan said in the debate following Qureshi's question.

"Sadly, it is reflective of hate against Muslims which continues to manifest itself alongside the rise of the far-right", said the council, which represents some 2.7 million British Muslims. The letter posted to some addresses and on social media urges terrorist and violent acts against Muslims in the United Kingdom.
