CAIR-MI: Northwest, Muslims Settle Clash


DEARBORN -- Northwest Airlines officials met behind closed doors Friday with some local Muslims who were banned a flight from Germany this month. One of the advocates for the travelers said all issues had been resolved.

Both sides agreed not to issue public statements, according to Dawud Walid, executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations. But earlier in the week, Northwest officials said they apologized and would reimburse passengers' costs for arranging additional flights and accommodations.

"We've reconciled the situation," Walid said.
