LONDON, ENGLAND, October 4, 2001: Despite calls for tolerance and restraint by the authorities, at least 200 attacks on Sikhs and 540 on Arab-Americans have been reported in the USA in the week following the September 11 attacks on New York and Washington, international human rights watchdog Amnesty International has said. "Mosques, Hindu temples and community centers have been attacked and vandalized in countries as diverse as India, the UK, Poland and Denmark," Amnesty said in a report. Amnesty International documents evidence of a backlash against Muslims and people of Middle Eastern or Asian origin or appearance in at least 10 countries.
