MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Minnesota civil rights and advocacy group for Muslims has denounced the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris.
The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations issued a statement Saturday condemning the attacks that killed at least 127 people in Paris.
In a statement, the Minnesota chapter’s executive director, Jaylani Hussein, called the attacks on civilians — in Paris, Beirut or any other city — “unacceptable and inexcusable.”
Hussein says the perpetrators of what he called “these heinous attacks” must be “apprehended and brought to justice.”
He says his organization’s thoughts and prayers are “with the loved ones of those killed and injured and with all of France.”
