The imam and developer behind a plan to build an Islamic center near the World Trade Center site are denying reports that there is a deal to move the facility.
A Florida pastor who had threatened to burn copies of the Quran in protest of the center announced Thursday that he had negotiated a deal to have its location changed.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf issued a statement through his publicist saying that was false, and there had been no negotiations of the sort.
Manhattan real estate developer Sharif El-Gamal also denied that any talks had taken place.
He said the center would go forward as planned.
