Did the BBC cut "Allah" and "Koran" references from an interview?

Karrien Stevens, who runs Little Diamonds Nursery in Hermon Hill, London said yesterday that a member of her staff was punched, kicked and slashed with a ‘Stanley knife’ by three ‘Asian women’ chanting about ‘Allah’ and the ‘Koran’.

The televised interview, which was shared on Twitter, shows a cut at 17 seconds – the point where users suggested Ms Stevens would have gone on to make her comments about Islam.

At this point in the clip users say the interview skips, suggesting two pieces of footage were spliced together.

The reason some Twitter users believe that these comments were edited out is because Ms Stevens is quoted in a written BBC Online article saying the women ‘shouted out “something to do with Allah and the Koran”.’
