A man has been charged after allegedly writing that Muslims should be “burned alive” in a mosque on Facebook.

Lee Gareth Darren McConnell, 30, of County Antrim, Northern Ireland, faced three charges at Coleraine Magistrates’ Court on November 26.

He is charged with making threats on November 17 to damage the Mosque belonging to the Muslim community in Coleraine.

He is also charged with publishing written material which was threatening, abusive or insulting, intending to stir up hatred or arouse fear.

The accused is further charged with sending a menacing message via Facebook: “It’s been here for quite a while mate c***s will be here before you know it, they need burned alive in the mosque the tramps”.

He was released on his own bail of £500 and is banned from accessing any social media site until the case is dealt with and he is also not allowed to enter Gateside Road, Coleraine, where the mosque is situated.

The case was adjourned until December.
