MO Mosque Burns For 2nd Time This Summer

A mosque in a Missouri town hard hit last year by a tornado has caught on fire for a second time this summer.

FOX News Radio’s Paul Stevens reports:

Audio clip:

The Islamic Center of Joplin, Missouri burned to the ground early Monday morning.  It’s the second blaze to hit the mosque, which also suffered minor arson damage from a fire on July 4th.  No arrests were made in that case despite a $15,000 reward from the FBI, $10,000 from the Council on American-Islamic Relations and security video of a man starting the fire.

The mosque’s sign was also torched in 2008.  The FBI has not determined whether Monday’s fire is another case of arson.
