David Cameron: Letter to Islamic leaders 'absolutely right'

David Cameron has defended a letter urging senior Muslims to explain how Islam "can be part of British identity", amid criticism from leaders.

David Cameron called the letter "the most reasonable, sensible and moderate letter" which the communities secretary could have written to say that everybody has a responsibility to fight extremism.
