"Today is a tragedy not just for Muslims, but for all people of faith and goodwill".
Authorities in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles joined London and some French cities in stepping up security outside mosques on Friday to guard against further attacks. "We don't need to be a community that's living in perpetual fear or despair".
