Arson at Terror Suspect’s Mosque

The Oregon mosque attended by Mohamed Osan Mohamud, the 19-year-old Somali terror suspect, was targeted with arson on Sunday. The fire at the Salman Alfarisi Islamic Center was contained to one room, and no one was injured. Mohamud was ensnared in an FBI plot and was arrested for plotting to bomb the Portland Christmas tree-lighting ceremony. It is unclear where or how he became radicalized; he grew up in Oregon.
