Two men tried to break into the suburban Detroit office of an Arab-American newspaper early on Friday morning, the weekly paper's founder and publisher said.

Most of the staff of The Arab American News in Dearborn, Michigan, were preparing the paper for printing around 2:30 a.m. EST when they heard several loud bangs at the building's back door, Osama Siblani told Reuters.

Dearborn has one of the largest Arab-American populations among US cities.

"I thought it was a Charlie Hebdo with an Arab twist. I thought we were under attack," Siblani told Reuters. He was referring to an attack on the satirical weekly magazine in Paris, where 12 journalists were killed by Islamic militants after it ran cartoons lampooning Islam and the Prophet Mohammad.
