DEARBORN, Mich. — President Barack Obama's liaison to the Muslim world is speaking at a Ramadan event in suburban Detroit on Sunday.

Rashad Hussain will speak on U.S. foreign policy at the Arab American National Museum in Dearborn. The Detroit Free Press says the talk is part of a dinner hosted by U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Detroit.
