A Detroit suburb may have elected the nation’s first Muslim-majority city council.
On Tuesday, Hamtramck voters elected Saad Almasmari and re-elected Abu Musa and Anam Miah.
They join Mohammed Hassan, meaning Muslims now hold four of the council’s six seats.
This Michigan city was settled by Germans, became predominantly Polish in the early 1900s, and now has a slight majority of Muslims from Yemen, Bangladesh and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
The city council in nearby Dearborn has an Arab-American majority, but not all are Muslim.
