Fake Anthrax Attack at Finsbury Mosque

16.06.2011/ 17.06.2011/ 18.06.2011

 

On Thursday, North London Central mosque (formerly Finsbury Park mosque) was evacuated after a parcel with suspicious white powder and racist/ anti-Islamic messages well as drawings was delivered to the imam of the mosque. Upon receipt, the people at the mosque were concerned that the white powder was anthrax and, therefore, informed the police. After conducting tests, however, the police found the powder to be harmless. Following this incident, the police admitted that it could be linked to a number of other ‘malicious communications’ that were sent to a number of mosques in London and elsewhere in the UK. The police are now investigating, especially in the Far-Right scene.
