 The University of Manchester’s Student Union Executive has launched an investigation after a student secretly filmed an extremist Muslim saying gay people should be killed.

The comments were secretly recorded by Middle East studies student Colin Cortbus at a public meeting organised by the Global Aspirations of Women student group at the University of Manchester’s Students’ Union on Wednesday 13 February.
