US President Joe Biden has expressed anger over the horrific killings for four Muslim men in Mexico.

“I am angered and saddened by the horrific killings of four Muslim men in Albuquerque. While we await a full investigation, my prayers are with the victims’ families, and my Administration stands strongly with the Muslim community.”

These hateful attacks have no place in America, Biden asserted.

Following the incident, the Islamic Center of New Mexico (ICNM) urged Muslims in Albuquerque to avoid walking alone at night in the city.
