Winston-Salem Mosque Vandalized

Posted Updated

WINSTON-SALEM — Vandals have attacked a mosque in Winston-Salem several times over the past week. A derogatory statement about the prophet Mohammed was carved into the front door of the mosque this week. Members discovered the damage to the door Friday.

Last week, someone tore up a Quran, or Muslim holy book, and left the pieces at the front door.

The mosque has also received threatening phone calls, but says they've been overshadowed by calls of support.
