ADC Calls For Immediate Investigation Into Explosion at Cincinnati Mosque
December 21, 2005
Washington, DC – The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) stands in solidarity with the Arab-American, and Muslim community in Ohio, after an explosion damaged a door Tuesday night at the Islamic Association of Cincinnati Mosque.
The explosion rocked the surrounding area after evening prayers had ended. However, no one was injured in the blast. About 300-500 people worship at the mosque on a typical Friday.
ADC President Mary Rose Oakar said, “ADC calls on law enforcement officials, public officials, and leadership in Cincinnati to undertake immediate measures to expedite the investigation into this terrible incident, and to determine the nature of this explosion.”
