More Alleged Sex Abuse Victims Come Forward Against Former Nur-Ul-Islam Academy Teacher

A sex scandal involving rape allegations and a possible cover-up at a Broward Islamic private school has taken another turn.

This week, new court documents filed by lawyers representing two alleged victims lay out more details of Ahmed's alleged behavior, including the stories of two new girls who claim they were abused and then suffered retaliation from school officials.
