Muslim Nonprofit Groups Reject Federal Funding

At least four Muslim groups in the US have rejects federal funds for fighting extremism to protest at some of President Trump's policies, which they believe are anti-Islamic. We speak to head of one group, the Bayan Claremont Islamic Graduate School in California, and the founder of the Republican Muslim Coalition, who disagrees.

Also in the programme: one of Japan's best known manga artists, Jiro Taniguchi, has died in France, and we speak to an American army officer and the Afghan translator he worked with and helped to bring him to US.
