California — US Attorney General Eric Holder Friday used a speech before a Muslim advocacy group near San Francisco to reiterate his resolve to prosecute hate crimes.

Speaking to the group called Muslim Advocates during their annual dinner in Millbrae, California, Holder said he's heard from many Muslim and Arab Americans who feel uneasy and singled out by law enforcement.The organization is one of several groups voicing concerns over hate crimes, alleged rights violations and the use of stings in anti-terrorism cases.

Holder also told the group he would make "no apologies" for the handling of a Somali-born Muslim accused of plotting to set off a bomb in Oregon.
