EDL founder Tommy Robinson loses libel case brought by Syrian schoolboy

English Defence League founder Tommy Robinson has lost a libel case brought by a Syrian schoolboy who was filmed being attacked at a Huddersfield school.

Mr Hijazi's lawyers said the comments had "a devastating effect" on him and his family, who had come to the UK as refugees.
