- Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah was detained by US border guards over Christmas. Our reporter Jamal Osman, a British Somali journalist, says it's a common experience - and tells his story.
Mo Farah has revealed that he is regularly stopped and questioned by US border agencies on suspicion of being a terrorist. He believes because of his Somali origin, he is detained every time he goes through US customs. That experience is common amongst Somalis and it has been going on for years. Border officials in America and Europe seem to target Somalis and in my experience, amongst the biggest offenders are the UK authorities.
