Molotov cocktail hurled at Samut Prakan mosque


A motorcyclist hurled a Molotov cocktail at a mosque in Samut Prakan province late on Tuesday, causing slight damage to a vinyl sign at its gate, police said.

A Muslim vendor, who has a store in front of the mosque, told police that he saw a teenager arrive on a motorcycle at around 11.50pm, light up the fire bomb and hurled it at the roof of the mosque.
