 US autopsy: FBI shot imam 20 times

US Muslim prayer leader was shot 20 times by FBI agents during a raid, an autopsy report said Monday.

The autopsy was completed last November, but released on Monday because of the ongoing investigation by the Dearborn police where the shooting took place.

Police had accused Abdullah of encouraging his followers to commit violence against the US government.

Abdullah was the imam of a small mosque in Detroit that served mostly black Muslims.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) says agents were trying to arrest him at a Dearborn warehouse when he resisted and fired a gun.

His family denied the charges, accusing the FBI of using excessive force against the Muslim prayer leader.
