PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — Muslims in Paterson, New Jersey, are fearing another backlash after the latest terror attack in the U.S. — the truck rampage in New York City that left eight people dead.

The man under arrest lived in Paterson.

Muslims in the city of 147,000 people saw a surge in harassment after 9/11 because as many as a half-dozen of the hijackers lived or spent time in Paterson.

A leading imam says that because of the bloodshed in New York this week, Muslims "will be blamed anywhere and everywhere."
