Worshippers at a Virginia mosque where Anwar al-Awlaki once served as imam have mixed reactions to news that he was killed in an air strike by U.S. forces.

After his time at the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center, al-Awlaki moved to Yemen and became one of the world's most notorious terrorists. Worshippers at the mosque said Friday that he besmirched their mosque and Islam by calling for the deaths of innocent Americans, yet one worshipper expressed reservations about the fact al-Awlaki died without a trial.

The mosque said in a statement that al-Awlaki began preaching violence after being tortured in Yemen. The statement said al-Awlaki's death means he will no longer spread his hate speech, but the mosque said it was concerned about the use of a drone in the attack.
