Controversy surrounds Arizona 9/11 memorial

Legislator proposes bill to remove name of local Sikh man killed in revenge attack from memorial.

    Controversy has been brewing in Arizona over one lawmaker's bid to remove the name of a local Sikh man from a 9/11 memorial.

    The lawmaker argued that Balbir Singh Sodhi, who was murdered four days after the September 11, 2001, attacks in a revenge killing, was not an actual victim of the attacks.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo speaks to Jim Walsh, a reporter for the Arizona Republic, who sheds more light on the case.
