Donald Trump hit back Saturday at accusations from the father of a slain Muslim soldier that the billionaire has "sacrificed nothing" for his country, saying he had employed thousands of people. Khizr Khan -- whose son died in Iraq -- accused the Republican presidential nominee of vilifying American Muslims in a steely rebuke that electrified the Democratic convention on Thursday. "Go look at the graves of brave patriots who died defending the United States of America," Khan said to Trump.
Muslims across France were invited to participate in Catholic ceremonies on Sunday to mourn a priest whose murder by jihadist teenagers sparked fears of religious tension. Masses will be celebrated across the country in honour of octogenarian Father Jacques Hamel, whose throat was cut in his church on Tuesday in the latest jihadist attack on France. "We are all Catholics of France," said Anouar Kbibech, the head of the French Muslim council CFCM, in an expression of togetherness in the wake of the attack.
