UK Hate Crimes on Rise

Britain’s National Police Chiefs Council has reported more than 6,000 hate crime incidents across the United Kingdom since the EU referendum in late June. Most of the cases have involved violence. The most commonly reported crimes were harassment, assault and other violence such as verbal abuse or spitting. The second and third most prevalent incidents were public order offences, followed by criminal damage, DW reported. Since the EU referendum result was declared on June 24, Muslims and Eastern Europeans have said they have been particularly targeted.
