Muslims in Scotland have expressed unease about the use of "stop and search" procedures at Glasgow Airport.

The Scottish-Islamic Foundation said some members were concerned about the type of interviews they faced.

The issue will be discussed on Tuesday night during a question and answer event at a Glasgow mosque.

It will feature a panel including Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill and representatives from Strathclyde Police and the force's Muslim Association.
