NORWALK - Muslim leaders in Connecticut are hoping that with Osama bin Laden's death, people will begin to see that he was not a representative of Islam.

Imam Kashif Abdul-Karim said that he hopes the death will bring about a new chapter in American-Muslim relations.

He says he hopes Americans will finally be able to understand that bin Laden was not a Muslim leader, but merely an extremist.

Other Muslim leaders say they are relived, but remain cautious as they know that extremism is still around.
