(London) CAGE is concerned by the disproportionate response of UK police following the alleged death of Abdul Waheed Majid in Syria. Despite the lack of verification and the fact that a family and community are mourning the loss, the response of the local police has been to swamp the locality and carry out dawn raids on various families.  A further three raids this morning indicates that the police are attempting to use the incident as an opportunity to intimidate a besieged community, hunt for suspects when there has been no crime and tarnish the reputation of local activists.
