'Suspicious' Fire At Islamic Boarding School

Some 128 pupils and staff have been evacuated after a "suspicious" fire broke out at an Islamic boarding school in Kent.
 Police were called to the Darul Uloom School, in Foxbury Avenue, Chislehurst, at 11.50pm on Saturday.
Two men were treated for smoke inhalation and 10% of the building was damaged during the blaze, which was brought under control within an hour.
Sky News' Charlotte Lomas said there would be a police update shortly, "which does suggest, perhaps that this fire was deliberate".
It follows a rise in religious hatred crimes after the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich last month.
Last week, a Somali cultural centre and mosque was burned to the ground in Muswell Hill, north London, and the letters "EDL" - the initials of the English Defence League - were found scrawled on the outside.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "The fire was extinguished shortly after the arrival of London Fire Brigade.
"Enquiries continue into the circumstances of the fire. At this early stage it is being treated as suspicious."
No arrests have been made.
The school said they did not want to comment yet and were "dealing with the parents".
The £3,000-a-year boarding school was established in 1988 with the purpose of producing "great scholars and Huffaz (people who have memorised the Koran) to preserve and transmit the eternal message of Allah".
It was built in 1974 and comprises 130 boarding rooms in addition to classrooms, dining hall, assembly hall, prayer hall, gym, playing fields and car parking with 100 spaces, over a 10 acre site.
An extension was built in 2007 consisting of 18 classrooms, a science laboratory, a prayer hall and wudhu (ablution) facilities.
