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.”
