CAIR-MI: MUSLIMS SETTLE DISPUTE WITH NORTHWEST
Local Muslim leaders met Friday with Northwest Airlines officials at the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn to resolve concerns by Muslim pilgrims who were denied entry onto a connecting flight to Detroit.
Northwest agreed to reimburse the passengers for extra flight and hotel costs.
"The people are satisfied," said Dawud Walid, head of the Michigan branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, who was at the meeting. "The situation has been resolved."
