Minnesotans prominent in Muslim radicalization hearing

A hearing that will be held in Washington this morning is getting a lot of attention. The House Homeland Security Committee, led by Republican Pete King of New York, will look into Muslim radicalization and the potential for terrorism in the U.S. Among those testifying will be Minneapolis DFL Congressman Keith Ellison who is Muslim.

MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with Brett Neely who covers Congress for Minnesota Public Radio News, and with MPR reporter Laura Yuen who spoke about a person from Minneapolis' Somali Community who is also testifying.
