Woolwich attack: 'As though he killed all mankind'

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has quoted the Koran to condemn the killing of a soldier in Woolwich, south-east London.

Speaking at a community event in north London, Mr Clegg said: "If anyone slays a human being, it shall be as though he killed all mankind; whereas, if anyone saves a life, it shall be as though he saved the whole of mankind

The specially-organised gathering of faith and community leaders was held in Islington in reaction to the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby on Wednesday.
