Islam in Cape Verde

According to the U.S. State Department International Religious Freedom Report 2006, there is a small Muslim community in Cape Verde.

Most Muslims are immigrants from Senegal and other neighboring African countries, and are active in small-scale commerce and souvenir trade. [ [http://www.state.gov/g/drl/rls/irf/2006/71291.htm www.state.gov] ]
