London — British police say four teenagers have been arrested after a suspicious weekend fire at an Islamic boarding school in a London suburb.
The fire at the Darul Uloom Islamic School in Chislehurst comes at a time of heightened community tensions in Britain.
There were 130 people inside the school at the time of the blaze and police said two were treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.
Police said on Monday that two teens aged 17 and two aged 18 have been arrested on suspicion of arson.
Police say they have added officers and patrols at sensitive Islamic sites throughout London.
Anti-Islamic attacks have increased since an off-duty British soldier was killed last month, allegedly by two Islamic extremists. Both have been charged with murder.
