    Work has begun on the first mosque in the US state of Alaska.

    For years, the Muslim community of America's largest state  simply did not have the cash to build one.

    But with a rise in the number of refugees in Alaska, religious leaders are hoping more donations will make it a reality.

    Al Jazeera's Adam Raney reports from Anchorage.
