FBI director defends use of informants in mosques

By Michael R. Blood
Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — FBI Director Robert Mueller says his agency will continue to use informants inside American mosques, despite complaints from Muslim organizations.

Mueller told reporters Monday in Los Angeles that investigations in places of worship will be respectful of constitutional rights, but will continue if warranted by evidence of possible wrongdoing.

A Muslim organization has asked the Justice Department to investigate complaints that the FBI is asking followers of the faith to spy on Islamic leaders.
