Detectives investigating a self-styled "Muslim patrol" vigilante gang have released two men and a 17-year-old boy on bail, Scotland Yard said yesterday. Officers are investigating a string of incidents in east London on 12 and 13 January where the group harassed members of the public. A video posted on YouTube showed the gang hurling homophobic abuse at one man, whom the police have urged to come forward. In the film they are heard to shout, "Get out of here you fag .... Don't stay around here any more."
