Terrorist attacks pose challenge for all 'people of faith,' says imam

Atrocities committed in the name of Islam reverberate in a historic mosque in Washington.

"It's difficult," said Imam Talib Shareef, who is head preacher at the Nation's Mosque.

He made the comments in an interview with Catholic News Service Nov. 28. Two weeks earlier, terrorist attacks, which the Islamic State claimed responsibility for, killed 130 people and wounded hundreds of others in various locations in Paris.
