PLAINFIELD, Ind. – An American Muslim group says it has established a fund to benefit the families of victims in the Fort Hood shootings.
The Islamic Society of North America announced Monday that it's collaborating with other Muslim organizations and interfaith groups to collect donations to help the families.
The attack Thursday at the Texas military base killed 13 people and injured 29 others. Authorities say the shooting was done by Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, an Army psychiatrist who is a Muslim.
A message seeking additional comment was left with a spokesman for the Plainfield, Ind.-based Islamic Society.
