Hate Crime Investigation in Little Falls
LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (AP) — Police in a central Minnesota city say they're investigating a threat to a Somali woman as hate crime.
Anab Ali moved to Little Falls with her children earlier this year and is one of few Somali residents in the city of about 8,000, about 100 miles north of the Twin Cities. The Star Tribune reports Ali told police two men came to her door last week, called her a terrorist and told her to move out of town or they would set fire to her home.
Haji Yussuf directs UniteCloud, a St. Cloud-area group that works to foster relationships between Muslims and non-Muslims. He says Ali told him she doesn't want to talk publicly about the confrontation because she doesn't want to portray Little Falls as a bad place.
