CAIR leader hopes St. Cloud can avoid retaliation
by Stephanie Dickrell
The leader of a Minnesota group focused on Islamic relations says he is worried about retaliation against the Somali-American community in the wake of an attack by a man who made references to Allah, the Muslim word for God.
"We are hopeful that the community will come together in a difficult tragedy," said Jaylani Hussein, executive director of the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
He said there is concern about retaliation in St. Cloud because of a history of anti-Muslim sentiment here.
