Proposed Norwalk mosque creating controversy

A group wanting to build a mosque and community center in Norwalk says there's been some anti-Islamic reaction to the project.

Neighbors are worried about parking and traffic problems the project could cause.

A public hearing on the proposal is being held Wednesday.
