Boston Muslims react to marathon bombs


Muslims living in Boston have been describing their feelings following the marathon bombings which killed three people and left more than 170 wounded.

One man at the Islamic Cultural Center said: "Whoever tried to kill an eight-year-old doesn't have any principles in his life."

A woman at Northeastern University's Islamic Society said she hoped the person behind the attacks was not a Muslim because it would "prove everyone's stereotypes".

Other students told the BBC's Franz Strasser they wanted to help the victims but were worried they would be considered a suspect because of their religion or appearance.
