Much as it may not have amounted to an exercise in so-called radicalisation, there are certainly questions to be asked about "an extended Islamic assembly" held at Park View in November 2013. Publicised in the school's official literature, it was addressed by Sheikh Shady al-Suleiman, a Muslim cleric who has views running from adultery to geopolitics that a lot of people would find offensive, let alone if he was speaking at a school funded from general taxation – something politely summed up in Ofsted's finding that "external speakers have not been vetted properly".

Will the real Sheikh Shady, etc. etc.

A video purporting to show around 130 of the schoolgirls kidnapped in Nigeria almost a month ago, has been released by the Islamist group, Boko Haram.

The group's leader, Abubakar Shekau, said they would be held until all imprisoned militants had been freed.

Boko Haram abducted more than 200 girls in northern Nigeria on 14 April and threatened to sell them.

I note she's a Mrs. - surely a reason, if you needed one, to keep your maiden name?

Would be great if her husband worked in the same school.
