Bacon Scattered at Site of Ramadan Celebration

Pieces of uncooked bacon were scattered at a Staten Island field where Muslims gathered to celebrate the end of Ramadan Sunday, and police are investigating it as a hate crime, authorities said Monday.

Organizers found the bacon on a section of the John D'Amato Field, in New Dorp, where about 1,500 people gathered Sunday to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr, the Muslim holiday marking the end of dawn-to-sunset fasting during Ramadan.
