Netherlands: Pig's head left at mosque

Unidentified people left a pig's head by the Al Mouahidin mosque in Ede last Sunday night.

The police confirmed the find on Tuesday.

Mosque-goers happened across the head on Sunday morning. Images from security cameras show two unidentified bicyclists left behind the head, which was packed in a bag. The mosque just opened its doors this past May.

The mosque aboard speaks of a deliberate action against the mosque, and reported the find to the police. The last time that the mosque was the target of opponents was more than a year and a half ago. While it was being built, the windows were smashed.

In the past year and a half, a spokesperson said, there's good contact with the surroundings. "We held an open day at the opening of our mosque, and that yielded countless enthusiastic reactions."
