FBI Investigating vandalism of mosque in Virginia

The FBI is investigating vandalism at a mosque that was spray-painted with obscene graffiti that included a misspelled reference to Iraqis and the phrase, “This is America.”

Lawrence Barry of the FBI office in Richmond said Monday that the agency is helping local authorities investigate. He said the FBI joined the investigation at the request of officials at the Islamic Center of the Shenandoah Valley, one of three Harrisonburg buildings targeted by vandals late last week.
