Justice Department to Probe Attacks on LA Muslims

Washington, DC: The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said March 8 that the Department of Justice (DOJ) will look into recent acts of vandalism directed at a Muslim school and home in Louisiana.
Local police are investigating a pair of incidents of vandalism during the weekend that targeted an Islamic school and the nearby home of a Pakistani.
Curse words were spray-painted on the wall of the Islamic School of Greater New Orleans. Vandals threw eggs and condiments on the Pakistani's front door and car. Bacon, which is forbidden to Muslims, was also allegedly thrown on his car.
