Minnesota stabbings: Somali Americans warn of alienation

As part of the BBC's US election coverage, we'’ve sent a team across the northern US by train to listen to voters' concerns.

They start in Minnesota where, just this Saturday, a Somali-American man stabbed and injured nine people in what police say may be a possible terror attack.

Much has been said about Muslims this election, and the apparent threat some people feel they pose, but how are Muslim Americans feeling ahead of the vote?

Aleem Maqbool reports from Minneapolis.
