Police in Tayside are to be trained how to tackle terrorism without alienating the Muslim community.

A number of the force's senior officers are attending a seminar at the Al-Maktoum Institute for Islamic and Arabic Studies.

The one-day course will explain key elements of the religion and culture.

Organisers said it would also discuss ways for the authorities to work with local communities, resulting in effective and sensitive policing.
