New York City police have been recruiting immigrants, most of them Muslims, in the years following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, to act as informants eavesdropping in cafes, restaurants and mosques, the New York Times reported Sunday.Detectives working for a unit known as the Citywide Debriefing Team conducted 220 such interviews in the first quarter of this year, the Times said, citing police officials, and conducted many hundreds of interviews in other years.Police officials described the interviews to the Times as voluntary, but the paper said several Muslim immigrants it spoke to felt shaken by the encounters.
