WASHINGTON (AP) - American Muslim organizations are condemning the Boston Marathon bombings and urging Americans of all faiths to join them in praying for the victims and their families.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations also is asking American Muslims to offer authorities any leads they may have to help capture the perpetrators of Monday's blasts.
CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper says it's unfortunate that Muslims are often instantly considered suspects in such attacks.
The Muslim Public Affairs Council and the Muslim Peace Coalition USA also condemned the Boston bombings and extended condolences to victims and their families.
