Attack on Muslims graves ignored by newspapers

Twenty Muslim graves in Southern Cemetery in Manchester were vandalised at the end of last week. The BBC reports:

Staff found the Muslim section of the cemetery littered with broken headstones on Friday morning.

Det Con Rob Southern said: "Sadly, we are treating this as a hate crime. This sort of mindless, racist behaviour must be utterly condemned."

It appears that none of the national newspapers covered the story. The Mail did report on the desecration of a World War One cemetery in France just a month ago. But not this.

Given that the English Defence League are planning to protest in Manchester later this week, there would appear to be a big news story here. Why is it being ignored?
