Birmingham riots: Community gathers for funerals

Up to 20,000 people have gathered for a prayer event ahead of the funeral for three men killed during riots in Birmingham.

Haroon Jahan, 21, Shazad Ali, 30, and Abdul Musavir, 31, were hit by a car as they protected stores from looters in Winson Green on 10 August.

The prayer is taking place in Winson Green's Summerfield Park, ahead of the men's private burials.

Four men are currently in custody charged with their murders.
