DOWNTOWN MANHATTAN - NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly today met with Muslim leaders after months of debate about the police department's practice of monitoring mosques and Muslim communities.

In a press release, Muslim organizations are asking for the next meeting with Kelly to be a townhall-style meeting that's open to the public.
