Australian Mosque targeted in firebomb attack

A fire bomb has detonated outside an Islamic centre in the city of Perth, Australia. The attack took place while hundreds of people were praying at a mosque on the Thornlie campus.

The heavy explosion outside the Thornlie Mosque caused no injuries but damaged four vehicles, one of which was completely gutted by the fire, police said.

No one inside the Thornlie mosque was injured when the white four-wheel drive exploded shortly after 8pm near the Australian Islamic College in Perth’s southern suburbs. Anti-Islamic graffiti was also sprayed on a fence.
Prime Minister Turnbull condemned the attack, saying Australia had a fundamental foundation of mutual respect.
