And also... #1in5Muslims; not quite terrorism; Russia's unlikely friendship

Every Friday, journalists from euronews’ various language teams choose a selection of stories from Europe and beyond which might not have reached the international headlines…

UK: #1in5Muslims

Muslims have taken to Twitter to mock British tabloid The Sun after it printed a poll claiming “1in 5 Brit Muslims” has “sympathy for jihadis.”

Many people criticised the polling methods and the way of interpreting the figures. But others decided to take another tack. In a dig at The Sun, people began tweeting made up facts about Muslims under the hashtag #1in5Muslims.


Russia: An unlikely friendship

Amur decided not to eat Timur. Instead the pair appear to have become friends. The goat now sleeps in the tiger’s bed and Amur has been relegated to the roof of his hut.

Park keepers says they have no plans to separate the pair.

Hungary: Terrorists? Not quite…

Four men suspected of being terrorists have been accused of nothing more sinister than a shared enthusiasm for World War II.

A court in Hungary dismissed accusations of terrorism following the group’s arrest for visiting the site of a wartime tank battle armed with old weapons they had found using a metal detector.


Germany: Refugee repays kindness

A photo of Syrian refugee Alex Assali has gone viral. He fled Damascus in 2007 to seek shelter in Germany.

Now he has been snapped preparing and handing out free hot meals to the homeless of Berlin, “to give something back to those who helped him.”

THATS ALEX! A big shoutout to him this morning, Dieser Mann beeindruckt mich zu tiefst! Seine Geschichte ist nicht...
