Muslim group calls for probe of vandalism at Omaha mosque

{{featured_button_text}}

OMAHA — A Muslim civil rights group wants the FBI and local police to investigate a possible hate crime vandalism that may be related to the Paris terror attacks.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations said in a news release Monday that it's the third recent incidence of vandalism at the Omaha Islamic Center. Center officials say someone has spray-painted a rough outline of the Eiffel Tower inside a circle on an outside wall of the mosque.

Omaha police and FBI representatives didn't immediately return messages.

On Oct. 29 a security camera recorded an image of a masked man unsuccessfully trying to break the glass in an outside door at the center, and on Aug. 23 a vandal heaved a 40-pound boulder through the glass.
