English city probes Islamic influence in schools

LONDON — The city of Birmingham in central England has expanded an investigation into an alleged Muslim plot to greatly expand Islamic influence in the city's school system.

The probe announced Monday will look into 25 schools after more than 200 complaints were received.

The complaints focus on allegations made in an anonymous letter known as Operation Trojan Horse that was leaked. It claimed that a group of radical Muslims had plans to force out teachers and administrators who resisted plans to increase the observance of Islamic customs in schools.

The letter's authenticity has not been verified.

Birmingham City Council and the Department for Education are both investigating complaints that boys and girls have been segregated in class, that sex education has been banned and that non-Muslim staff members have been bullied.
