Mourners Gather For Muslim Teen


Mourners gathered for the funeral of Nabra Hassanen are haunted by visions of her final moments: running for her life in the moonlight, trying in vain to escape the killer chasing her with a baseball bat. The vicious end to 17-year-old Hassanen’s life over the weekend was a nightmare come true for hundreds of young women, mainly black and brown Muslims, who were among throngs of mourners packed into a suburban Virginia mosque for the Islamic funeral. One woman said “That could’ve been us, our sisters, our best friends. It’s hitting very close to home.”

  • Mourners gather at vigils in New York to honor Ginsburg's legacy

    New York, Sep 19 (EFE/EPA).- Hundreds of mourners on Saturday gathered at vigils in New York for the progressive judge of the US Supreme Court Ruth Bader Ginsburg who died at the age of 87 from "complications" of the pancreatic cancer she suffered. Ginsburg had served on the Supreme Court for nearly three decades, arriving in 1993 as the second woman in history to serve on this court, after a career dedicated to feminist causes and civil rights.The health of the magistrate, due to her advanced age, has had the country in suspense, especially the progressive ranks, who feared that if Ginsburg left the Supreme Court, her replacement would be chosen by President Donald Trump. This would expand the existing conservative majority of the most important court in the country.The Supreme Court is made up of nine judges with life positions, currently five conservative and four progressive.

  • Mourners gather in Minneapolis to remember George Floyd

    Minneapolis, Jun 4 (EFE/EPA).- Shouts and slogans against police brutality targeting African Americans once again on Thursday resounded through the streets in a number of major US cities, while in Minneapolis hundreds gathered to bid a tearful farewell to George Floyd, whose murder while in police custody last week sparked a nationwide wave of protests, riots and looting.Hundreds of people paid homage to George Floyd, an African American, at the North Central University amphitheater in the Minnesota capital, with Martin Luther King III, the oldest son of the civil rights leader killed in 1968, and the Rev. Jesse Jackson among the crowd.Also on hand for the service were Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, US Congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Ayana Pressley and Joyce Beatty; along with rappers TI, Ludacris and Tyrese Gibson; comedians Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish; and actress Marsai Martin.Before Floyd's gold-colored casket, the Rev. Al Sharpton delivered an emotional eulogy in which he urged the black community to remove once and for all the "knee" that presses down on their neck and prevents them from prospering, a metaphor evoking the way in which Floyd lost his life on May 25.Floyd, who has become a symbol of the hunger for change, was arrested by Minneapolis police, handcuffed and placed facedown on the pavement but then suffocated when a white cop knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes, a shocking death scene that was recorded by passersby on their cellphones and has sparked outrage and anger all across the US.
