BERLIN - Germany's interior minister urged the local Muslim community on Friday to join government efforts to combat radicalism among young Muslims, putting a special focus on the influence of militant websites.

"We want to stand up to the radicalization and misuse of religion together," Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich said after talks with leaders of the Muslim community and security experts on how to prevent the spread of militancy.

"All citizens of this country, no matter what our political tendency or religion, must take on the fight against radicalism and terror," he told reporters.

Friedrich gave the example of a 21-year-old Kosovan man, brought up in Germany, who attacked a bus carrying US military personnel at Frankfurt airport in March, killing two airmen.
