A GROUP of Muslim teenagers has flown out to visit Auschwitz concentration camp to learn about the horrors of the Jewish Holocaust.

The 12 from schools in London's East End flew out at 3am this morning (Weds) in a groundbreaking council project to improve interfaith relations.

The six boys and six girls were selected from Tower Hamlets schools and left for Poland at 3am. They are due to return late tonight.

The group is getting a guided tour round the notorious Auschwitz-Birkenau death camps, where one-and-a-half million Jews died in Hitler's 'Final Solution' in which six million perished during the Second World War.
