Vandals Hit, Leave Pig Parts in Swedish Mosque; Called Hate Crime Due to Muslims' View of Pork

A mosque in Sweden's Fittja was vandalized yesterday after attackers broke windows and left pig body parts in it, the World Bulletin website reports today (November 20, 2013).

Due to Muslims' aversion to pork, the leaving of pig trotters in the mosque has been deemed a hate crime.

The mosque -- which was built in 2007 -- is the only mosque in Sweden that issues the call to prayer on Fridays and attracts up to 1,500 worshipers.

Almost 500,000 Muslims live in Sweden, making up around five percent of Sweden's overall population.
