Mother of US Muslim soldier hits back at Trump over speech silence
The mother of a dead US Muslim soldier has hit back at presidential hopeful Donald Trump for questioning her silence during a speech by her husband.
Ghazala Khan said Mr Trump was ignorant about Islam and that he did not know the meaning of the word sacrifice.
Her husband Khizr Khan attacked the Republican nominee in an emotional speech to the Democratic National Convention on Thursday.
Mr Trump later suggested Mrs Khan may not have been allowed to speak.
The couple's son, US Army Capt Humayun Khan, was killed by a car bomb in 2004 in Iraq at the age of 27.
In an opinion article for the Washington Post, Mrs Khan said her husband had asked her if she wanted to speak at the convention but she had been too upset.
