      "NEW YORK (AP) - Working with the CIA, the New York Police Department
      maintained a list of "ancestries of interest" and dispatched
      undercover officers to monitor Muslim businesses and social groups,
      according to new documents that offer a rare glimpse inside an
      intelligence program the NYPD insists doesn't exist.

      The documents add new details to an Associated Press investigation
      that explained how undercover NYPD officers singled out Muslim
      communities for surveillance and infiltration.

      The Demographics Unit, a squad of 16 officers fluent in a total of at
      least five languages, was told to map ethnic communities in New York,
      New Jersey and Connecticut and identify where people socialize, shop
      and pray.

      Once that analysis was complete, according to documents obtained by
      the AP, the NYPD would "deploy officers in civilian clothes throughout
      the ethnic communities.""
