Cat Stevens wheeled out for opening ceremony

The BBC reports an hour or two before the opening ceremony.

Building bridges between Muslims and the wider community is one of the aims of a four-day event in London about the faith, organisers say.
The Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) said it wanted to attract a wide range of visitors to IslamExpo.
Mayor Ken Livingstone, Lord Coe and Yusuf Islam - formerly Cat Stevens - will open the event in London, which is expected to attract 40,000 people.
Among those due to speak is former Iraq hostage Norman Kember.
