Firebomb attack outside Australian mosque

A firebomb attack outside an Australian mosque while worshippers were at prayer was condemned Wednesday by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, with one Islamic leader calling it a “hate crime”.

No one was injured in Tuesday night’s blast which destroyed a car parked outside a mosque and Islamic college in the Perth suburb of Thornlie.

“It is believed an accelerant was used to start the fire,” Western Australian police said in a statement, adding that three other vehicles were damaged in the incident.
