TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Dozens of people came to services at a northwest Ohio mosque to pray for the victims and condemn the radical Islamic terrorists who slaughtered innocents in Paris.

The (Toledo) Blade ( ) reports that the two vigils on Sunday at the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo attracted people of all faiths.

Talal Eid, imam of the mosque, said the services were planned to show that Muslims condemn violence perpetrated in the name of religion.

Jason DePriest, who brought his wife and two children, says it was an opportunity to show his little ones that they are part of a larger community that cares for others.

Eid prayed for those who died, saying: “This was not an attack on Paris. This was an attack on our collective humanity.”
