Some Muslim students at City University in London are praying in the street in a row over prayer room facilities.

The university closed a prayer room after Muslim students were attacked in November. A new multi-faith room was opened the following month.

A group of Muslim students now refuse to use the facility as they say they cannot pray in a multi-faith room.

The university says it goes against its philosophy to provide a room for just Islamic students.
