Peace rally held in Birmingham after riot deaths

A peace rally is taking place at Summerfield Park in Birmingham in response to the rioting and the loss of three lives in Winson Green.

Haroon Jahan, 21, and brothers Shazad Ali, 30, and Abdul Musavir, 31, died on Wednesday as they protected businesses from looters.

One man at the rally said people had united to show that the events of recent days would not damage their community.
