Story just fuels cultural divide

THE Belfast Telegraph led one day this week with an article about Mark Townley, a man who was up to almost every scam imaginable, including trying to kill Prince Harry (News, February 11).

However, anti-Islamic sensationalist discourse sells more papers. Sadly, this does nothing for cross-cultural understanding.
