NY Post boycotted by Yemeni-Americans over Ilhan Omar, 9/11 cover

Yemeni-American merchants are defending Muslim congresswoman Ilhan Omar over New York Post's criticism.

    Right-wing media in the US have attacked congresswoman Ilhan Omar over her comments on the September 11 Twin Towers attacks.

    The New York Post has been among the most virulent, but the Yemeni American Merchants Association has defended Omar and called for a boycott of the newspaper for 30 days.

    Al Jazeera's Kristen Saloomey reports from New York.
