Islamic Center - Fire Attack

NEW YORK (AP) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations is
condemning the firebombing of an Islamic center in New York City.
     The group says about 80 worshippers were inside the Imam
Al-Khoei Foundation Sunday night when a molotov
cocktail was thrown at the building, damaging a door.
     Gov. Andrew Cuomo also condemned the attack on the Queens mosque
and three nearby sites, including a house used for Hindu worship
services. Authorities are investigating the attacks as bias crimes.
There were no injuries.
     Police say three of the attacks involved molotov cocktails made
from bottles.
     The two bottles thrown at a house used for Hindu worship didn't
explode.
