Harrow's Interfaith Council has led a multi-faith Prayer Vigil for the victims in Mumbai at Harrow Civic Centre.

A two-minute silence was held in the main council chamber as representatives of nine different religions gathered to pay their respects to those killed by terrorist attacks in India.

At least 170 people were killed after terrorists attacked the Taj Mahal and Oberoi-Trident hotels in Mumbai and other locations last month.

Mary Hale, Chair of the Harrow Interfaith Council, who chaired the Prayer Vigil said: "The fact that the nine faiths are able to work together is a visible sign of the good relationships of the faiths in Harrow".
