Police are stopping cars in an area where a man was murdered while walking home from a mosque two weeks ago.

Mohammed Saleem, 75, was stabbed after leaving the Green Lane Mosque in Small Heath, Birmingham, on 29 April.

Police were stopping passers-by to ask if they were in the Little Green Lane area a fortnight ago.

Crimestoppers has offered a £10,000 reward for information over the murder, with the cash being issued upon arrest and conviction of those responsible.

The West Midlands force said the motive for the attack, which happened at about 22:30 BST, remained unclear.

It wants to identify and speak to a man seen in CCTV footage running along Wyndcliffe Road near the spot where Mr Saleem was murdered.

Police are investigating "all lines of enquiry" and handing out leaflets about the reward on Monday.

Det Supt Mark Payne, from force CID, said: "There has been real support from local residents and members of the congregation of Green Lane Mosque.

"We continue to appeal to anyone who can help us identify the man seen in the CCTV footage."
