Juhel Miah: 'I was blocked from US due to my name'

A British Muslim teacher, denied entry to the United States during a school trip, has told an anti-racism rally it was due to his colour, religion and name.

Juhel Miah, 25, whose full name is Mohammed Juhel Miah, was with a Llangatwg Community School group when he was escorted off a connecting flight from Iceland to New York.

He told a Stand Up to Racism rally in Cardiff he was unfairly made to feel like a "threat".

Hundreds turned out for the event.
