9/11 ONE YEAR ON: Disgust at celebration.

Byline: DOMINIC TURNBULL

MUSLIM fanatics are staging a sick event to celebrate the first anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks.

Posters advertising a conference, which have been obtained by the Sunday Mirror, bear the slogan, "September 11: A Towering Day in History". They show United Airlines Flight 175 crashing into the World Trade Centre.

The posters are the work of the extremist group Al-Muhajiroun which will hold the conference at Finsbury Park Mosque while the Queen attends a memorial service at St Paul's Cathedral for the 3,000 people killed in the attacks.

The posters initially appeared in Stepney, East London, but yesterday dozens more were stuck up in Blackburn and Birmingham.

Al-Muhajiroun leader Sheikh Omar Bakri claimed the meeting was a "serious" look at the aftermath of the atrocity, but condemnation was swift. Roz South, who runs a memorial fund for victim Robert Eaton, 37, said: "Most people will find this abhorrent."
