MUSLIM leaders were joining political leaders today in a terror summit.
Prime Minister Tony Blair was meeting leaders of the Muslim community in No 10 in the wake of the July 7 bombings - along with Tory and Liberal Democrat leaders Michael Howard and Charles Kennedy.
Downing Street have not released details of who else will be at the meeting, but it is expected to include prominent clerics from around the country as well as leaders of the Muslim business community.
Mr Blair's official spokesman made clear the premier hopes talks will build on a meeting last week with Muslim MPs - including Dewsbury's Shahid Malik - after which they called for their community to confront the "perverted" interpretation of Islam identified by Mr Blair.
The Prime Minister's official spokesman said: "The important thing is we recognise that words themselves, while welcome, are not enough. We have to have action in the communities."
