The Independent reported that the Greater Manchester Police Chief made a public apology after conducting a simulated terror attack at one of the UK’s largest shopping malls, the Trafford Centre, as part of a counter-terrorism training exercise. Community groups and activists criticized the Manchester police for using religious stereotypes in their simulation training exercise, arguing that it would cause confusion by linking the attack to religion and would further promote anti-Muslim prejudice.
