WINGATE, N.C. (AP) - An online threat prompted heightened security after a North Carolina university's Muslim Students Association invited a journalist to campus.

News outlets report the group at Wingate University advertised an event featuring journalist Noor Tagouri on its Facebook page. The Council on American-Islamic Relations said in a statement that someone posted a comment on the ad with insulting remarks about the Quran and telling attendees "good luck living through it."
