Security: New York police blacklist mosques

The New York Police Department has allegedly branded US mosques as terrorist organisations so it can monitor anyone who attends them. This is according to police documents leaked to a news agency. Muslim groups say the labels are consistent with religious profiling by the NYPD and are calling on the US Department of Justice to investigate. Al Jazeera's Cath Turner reports from New York City.
