Anti-Muslim graffiti daubed on a wall in the wake of the Brussels attacks has been corrected by locals as a gesture of goodwill.

The words "All Muslims are scum" were daubed on a wall close to the Croke Parkstadium in Dublin days after 31 people were killed and hundreds more injured when bombs tore through an airport and a metro station.

But it has been changed to a more inclusive message which now reads "All Muslims are sound".

Pictures of the amended graffiti in Dublin have been shared widely on social media.

Fazel Ryklief, from the Islamic Foundation of Ireland, welcomed the move.

He told the Irish Mirror: "Maybe that is the way to treat things. Instead of getting angry and annoyed, just change it.

"Putting it aside is perhaps better than making a big deal of these things.

"It brings a little smile to know that someone has a sense of humour."
