FBI interviewing Muslims in Texas over alleged al-Qaeda terrorist threat, community leader says
by Caleb Downs
Investigators from the FBI interviewed Muslims in North Texas this weekend after warnings that al-Qaeda may target the state on the eve of Election Day, a Muslim community leader said.
The North Texas Council on American-Islamic Relations has received reports that Muslims from Kansas, Oklahoma, Florida and Texas were questioned by FBI agents, according to Alia Salem, the group's director.
"It was made apparent to us that the FBI has a list of a couple hundred people they are wanting to visit and ask a series of eight generic questions intended to drum up information about the attacks," Salem said.
