First Minister Peter Robinson in public apology to Muslims

Northern Ireland First Minister Peter Robinson has made a public apology for comments he made defending a pastor who called Islam "heathen" and "satanic".

Mr Robinson came under fire last week for defending comments made by Pastor James McConnell.

But on Tuesday he met Muslim community leaders at Belfast Islamic Centre and apologised to them.
