Muslims are planning to gather in Dearborn this afternoon to call for unity in the aftermath of the bombing of one of the most important mosques for Shi’ite Muslims in Iraq.

Sunni and Shi’ite leaders are expected to hold a 4 p.m. news conference at the Karbalaa Islamic Education Center in Dearborn, a Shi’ite mosque headed by Imam Husham Al-Husainy.

“We want to affirm our unity as Shi’ites and Sunnis,” said Dawud Walid, head of the Michigan branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. “We should be an example of how all Muslims can work together.”
