Mar 14, 2018

Three men arrested in Illinois on gun charges are now suspects in the bombing of a mosque in suburban Minneapolis, federal authorities announced Tuesday. The men are suspected of throwing an explosive into the imam's office at the Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington in the early morning hours of Aug. 5, 2017. The blast caused damage to the room and filled the building with smoke, but did not result in any injuries to congregants preparing for morning prayers in an adjacent room.
