RONKONKOMA, N.Y. — Arson detectives are investigating a hate crime attack at a mosque on Long Island.

A member of the Fatima Al-Zahra mosque in Ronkonkoma posted video to social media showing damage to a crescent sign on the property. 

He said the sign was fire-bombed in the middle of the night Monday. 

“Somebody early this morning, around 1:00 in the morning, threw a bomb canister at the masjid that exploded and you can see the damage here, over there,” he said. “There is no place for hate in our community.”
