    MONSEY, NY (AP) – At a Hacnusas Sifer Torah celebration in Monsey on Sunday that was planned before the shooting, several members of the community stood guard armed with assault-style rifles.

    They refused to give their names when approached by an Associated Press journalist, but they said they were there to defend their community.
