It is fair to say that American terrorism commentator Steven Emerson knows a lot more about the city of Birmingham now.

After describing Britain's second city as a "Muslim-only city" where non-Muslims "don't go", the denizens of the Twittersphere - and Birmingham itself - set him straight.

His comments came in for ridicule, with the hashtag #FoxNewsFacts trending on Twitter.

Mr Emerson, who founded a group called The Investigative Project on Terrorism, later issued an apology for his "terrible error".

Reporting by Rajini Vaidyanathan. Produced by the BBC's Franz Strasser.
