Terrorists trying to 'weaken our faith' - Obama

31 March 2016, 01:11

Washington - US President Barack Obama says the goal of terrorists is to "weaken our faith" and lead people to strike out against those who look or pray differently.

Obama was using remarks at an Easter prayer breakfast to urge people to stand against extremist groups like those that recently attacked in Belgium and Pakistan. He says the attacks "tempt us to cast out the stranger" and to turn backs on those in need of help and refuge.

Obama says this Easter holiday took on greater meaning as a result of "horrific acts of terror". He's noting that most of the victims were Christian and Muslim women and children.

Obama says he's been changed by his faith. He says it's taught him there's always the possibility of redemption.
