Just before sitting down to speak with Anderson, former Muslim extremist turned author and politician Maajid Nawaz learned he was named directly in a death threat from the terror group al-Shabab. That's the same group blamed for the Nairobi mall massacre, along with a string of terror attacks around the world. In a wide ranging interview, Nawaz shares his journey of de-radicalization and discusses why the voices of moderate Muslims are needed to combat extremism and terrorism.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
