Police in WA state reaching out to Muslims
SEATTLE (AP) - Police in Washington state are reaching out to Muslim community leaders to make sure they feel safe amid talk that terrorists may be looking to retaliate for the killing of Osama bin Laden. Officials say such talk can stoke anti-Islamic fervor in certain quarters. Seattle police officer Sean Whitcomb says the department is building on its already established relationship with local Muslim leaders, and he says if they have any fears "we'd be there in a heartbeat."
