Tariq Jahan appeals for calm after his son and two other men were killed. 21 year old Haroon Jahan, and brothers Shazad Ali (30) and Abdul Musavir (31) were killed on Tuesday evening in a hit and run incident by suspected looters as they guarded a petrol station forecourt with many other people on Dudley Road in the Winson Green area of Birmingham, which was hit by a surge of rioting and looting. The violence started in London on Saturday evening after a peaceful protest in response to the shooting by police of Mark Duggan during an attempted arrest escalated into a riot, but has now spread to other areas in the country.
