Peter Robinson says Muslim comments were 'hyped up'

Northern Ireland First Minister Peter Robinson has said his remarks about the Muslim community were misinterpreted and "hyped up".

The DUP leader said: "If I said anything that was derogatory, of course I would apologise.

"That's why I want to meet leaders of the Muslim community here to assure them they have my ongoing support."

Mr Robinson was speaking to BBC Northern Ireland political editor Mark Devenport.
