Bomb suspected in morning blast at U.S. mosque

Bomb blast at mosque during prayers – FBI probe after 'device hurled through window' Blast Reported at Minnesota Islamic Center

Early morning worshipers at Dar Al Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington, Minn., were shaken by a blast at 5:05 a.m. that shattered windows in the imam's (Islamic religious leader) office.

According to CBS, the fire was small enough that community members were able to extinguish it before emergency services arrived.

While a witness claimed to see someone standing outside the window to the office and a pickup truck speed away after the explosion, police were initially hesitant to say the blast was caused by a bomb.

Police are investigating after a bomb went off Saturday at a mosque in Bloomington, Minnesota, just as worshippers were gathering for early morning prayers. Authorities say the explosion damaged one room but it didn't hurt anyone. "I was shocked to learn this happened".

The Islamic center is managed by Somali Americans.

A mosque in Bloomington, Minnesota, was been rocked by an explosion during the first prayers of the day on Saturday in what worshipers say was an arson attack.

Everton drawn with Hajduk Split in Europa League play-off round
Calvert-Lewin's smart finish sealed Everton's progress though, leaving Koeman satisfied with the night's work. The only goal was scored by the Everton's Dominic Nathaniel Calvert-Lewin.

At a news conference that included clergy from several faiths, Asad Zaman, director of the local Muslim American Society, described the attack as a firebombing.

"An attack on a mosque is an attack on a synagogue, is an attack on a church, it's an attack on all faith communities", said Curtiss DeYoung, CEO of Minnesota Council of Churches.

Zaman added that a $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

Violence like this has no place in Minnesota and no place in America. "I will remain in close contact with Minnesota Public Safety Commissioner Mona Dohman throughout the weekend and until this investigation is complete". Nationwide, the number of reported hate crimes against Muslims saw a steep rise in 2015 and a further surge has been reported in 2016. Their investigations will be crucial in determining what happened this morning. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is also closely following the case.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has launched an investigation into the attack, which occurred around 5am local time (09:00 GMT). "We are thankful that there were no injuries, but that does not diminish the serious nature of this act".
