British hospital turns Muslims’ beds to face Mecca

A British hospital has agreed to turn seriously ill Muslim patients’ beds to face Mecca, as part of efforts to improve services for the Islamic community, a spokeswoman said Tuesday.
Dewsbury and District Hospital in West Yorkshire—a region of northern England which has a large Muslim population—is also offering halal options at mealtime, said matron Catherine Briggs.
