WATERLOO, Iowa — Police are investigating after officials at a Waterloo mosque say four people were found setting fires in the mosque’s parking lot.
Ibrahim Shehata, president of the Islamic Foundation of Iowa in Waterloo, told the Courier that the four people —two adults and two children — were found Wednesday night using an accelerant to light cans on fire in the parking lot, including near the entrance door and some vehicles.
He said the four ran off, leaving the cans behind, when members of the congregation arrived. No one was injured and no damage was reported.
Shehata says the mosque has surveillance footage of the incident, which has been turned over to police.”
