Muslim advocacy group criticizes FBI for questioning of 5 SoCal Muslims
by Robert Faturechi
A national Muslim advocacy organization Monday criticized the actions of the FBI, saying agents unjustifiably questioned five Southern California Muslims last week.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations said the men were among a group detained last December by police in Henderson, Nev., after they stopped at a parking lot to pray during a road trip. The organization had filed a complaint with the Henderson Police Department at the time.
According to the advocacy organization, one of the men who was questioned was shown a book with information on war tactics and was told that Henderson police had seen similar books in the car during the stop in Nevada.
