Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Police have arrested 20 protesters outside the US embassy in London on suspicion of representing the recently-banned extremist group Muslims Against Crusades.

    Some protesters are still outside the embassy in central London.
    Activists said demonstrations over the use of American drones in Pakistan had been organised by a group calling itself United Ummah.
    Scotland Yard intervened after members were linked to the banned group involved in the burning of poppies on Armistice Day last year.
    Muslims Against Crusades was added to a list of the UK's banned terrorist groups after an announcement by Home Secretary Theresa May last month.
    The group then cancelled its "Hell for Heroes" demonstration against Remembrance commemorations. It was due to take place outside the Royal Albert Hall in London, where poppies were burned last year.
    A Scotland Yard spokesman said that in addition to the 20 arrests surrounding the banned group, two others had been made for obstruction and violent disorder.
    The demonstration began at noon outside the embassy, which has seen a string of clashes between protesters in recent years.
