afghangster:

On Sunday, September 30, 2012, smoke was looming from the structure and firefighters and police were dispatched to the mosque. Firefighters found an intentionally planted incendiary device in the prayer hall on the second floor. Firefighters found extensive smoke, fire, and water damage on the second floor. An investigation is underway by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms as well as local and federal law enforcement agencies.

Today, police and investigators have determined that the fire was actually an intentionally planted bomb. It went off when the mosque was empty, and hence no one was hurt. But the device was detonated in the main prayer hall. Sunday is the main gathering day for the parishioners at the Islamic Center, and if the bomb would have detonated just a few hours earlier, there could have been significant casualties. Thankfully, the mosque was empty.”

Take some time to pray for the Muslim community of Toledo, Ohio during this troubling time.
