Michael O'Leary: Ryanair boss criticised for Muslim profiling comments

Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary has been criticised for saying Muslim men should be profiled at airports.

The chief executive told the Times that "males of a Muslim persuasion" who are single and travelling alone pose the largest terror threat to airlines, reports BBC.

The Muslim Council of Britain said Mr O'Leary's comments were "racist and discriminatory".

Ryanair later said Mr O'Leary was "only calling for more effective airport security checks".
