ANCHORAGE - Muslims have broken ground in Anchorage on the first mosque in Alaska.
KTUU-TV reports the Islamic Community Center of Anchorage purchased the site for $600,000. The construction that began last weekend is expected to take two years.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations says more than 2,000 Muslims live in the Anchorage area.
