A BOOK of condolence has been opened at a city mosque in memory of the 199 people killed in the bomb outrage in Madrid. Tributes are being paid to the victims of Thursday's atrocity by visitors to the Birmingham Central Mosque in Highgate.

The book was opened at lunchtime yesterday before an address by the chairman of the mosque, Dr Mohammed Naseem.

A spokesman for Birmingham Central Mosque said: 'The Muslim community has been deeply affected by the bomb attacks.

'We want to convey to the community that we do not condone terrorist acts and also show solidarity with the victims.'
