Arab media attack 'racist' Kilroy

BBC:Pan-Arab media outlets have reacted with outrage to comments about Arabs made in a newspaper article by UK TV presenter Robert Kilroy-Silk.

Its London correspondent said Mr Kilroy-Silk had been "inaccurate by mixing up what is Arab, Muslim and Iranian" and "failed to distinguish between the terrorists who carried out the 11 September attacks and the 200 million ordinary Arabs".
