From Tragedy At Chapel Hill, A Call For Tolerance

Feb 16, 2015

The families of the three young Muslims fatally shot in Chapel Hill last week have been urging people to see the incident as a hate crime.

Chapel Hill police, who have arrested and charged a suspect, say they’re looking at all possible motives, and the FBI has opened its own parallel preliminary inquiry.

The tragedy struck a chord with many young Muslims – especially the closest friends of Deah Barakat, Yusor Abu-Salha and Razan Abu Salha. From the Here & Now Contributors Network, Reema Krais of WUNC reports.
