Representatives of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) met today with officials of the German embassy in Washington, D.C., to discuss a recent incident in which a pregnant Muslim woman was stabbed to death at a Dresden court while testifying against a man who had insulted her for wearing a religiously-mandated headscarf, or hijab.

The woman was stabbed 18 times as court security personnel allegedly failed to intervene. When the woman's husband attempted to shield her from the attacker, he was shot by those same security personnel and remains in critical condition.
