Explosive thrown through window at Minnesota Mosque

 

…The explosion was reported to the police around 5 a.m., and they found “smoke and some damage” upon arriving. Mike Hartley, the deputy police chief in Bloomington, said there was no structural damage to the building, but he declined to elaborate on any damage inside.

…No injuries were reported. The building sustained damage to its front, and photographs from the scene showed a large shattered window, singed blinds and charring around the outside.

…In a news conference, Mohamed Omar, the executive director of the mosque, said the explosion had occurred “in the direction of the imam’s room.”
