STERLING, Va. (AP) - The FBI has given a Community Leadership Award to a prominent northern Virginia mosque.

On Friday the FBI’s Washington Field Office recognized the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) Center in Sterling for its efforts in building partnerships between law enforcement and the Muslim community.

The ADAMS Center and its imam, Mohamed Magid, have hosted high-level law-enforcement officials at the mosque for town-hall style meetings. The mosque has also initiated numerous community programs with the goal of countering violent extremism and efforts by terrorists groups to recruit and radicalize young Muslims over the Internet.
