One of the headline stories on the BBC News website this morning is:
Reading the BBC article about the violent attack by a gang of "teenagers" on a gay couple who had been holding hands, I guessed that something might have been missing from the BBC's account.
Googling around revealed what that missing element was, with the Telegraph quoting one of the victims of the homophobic attack saying:
And then suddenly there was a group of six to eight Moroccan youths. Before I knew it I was on the ground fighting with three men on top of me.
The BBC's previous article about the attack (four days ago), Dutch men hold hands to protest against homophobia, was similarly reticent about the apparent background of the alleged attackers, merely referring to them as "a group of men".
Given that the Telegraph report and the first BBC report were published around the same time, it's evident that the BBC chose not to report the remarks of the victim about the youths being "Moroccan".
It's the same old story.
