Teaching children to reject homophobia can help stop terror attacks, according to a teacher at the centre of a gay rights row.

Woman jailed for 11 years for performing FGM on her 3-year-old daughter
A judge has sentenced a 37-year-old Ugandan woman to 11 years in jail for performing female genital mutilation (FGM) on her three-year-old daughter, the UK's Press Association (PA) news agency reported.
The defendant was found guilty of the "barbaric" practice last month, becoming the first person to be convicted of the offense in the UK.
In sentencing at London's Old Bailey criminal court Friday, Judge Mrs Justice Whipple handed down an 11-year jail term and a further two years for possession of indecent images and extreme pornography.
"FGM has long been against the law and let's be clear FGM is a form of child abuse," PA reported the judge as saying.
