Islam conference aims to improve community relations

MUSLIM leaders have called for better understanding of Islam, amid concerns terrorist attacks and fundamentalism are warping opinions of the religion.

More than 800 people turned up at an event held to discuss all aspects of the religion and listen to a host of high-profile speakers at Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange yesterday afternoon.
