Hudson Valley Muslims fearful after Orlando shooting

Some Muslims in the Hudson Valley say they are fearful for their safety after the Orlando shooting massacre.



Hate crimes against Muslims tripled after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, leaving many families to question what's next.



While many are fearful, students at the Andalusia Islamic School in Yonkers want to make it clear that the Orlando massacre shooter does not reflect their faith.



On Thursday, the students prayed for the victims and peace.



"People think we are terrorists," said one young student. "Actually, in our religion, a rule is to never kill another person."
