(Portland, OR) -- The Council on American-Islamic Relations is condemning an arson attempt at a Portland mosque. The Oregon chapter of the organization spoke out yesterday, calling Wednesday's incident at the Muslim Community Center of Portland's North Vancouver Avenue building "deeply disturbing." The group adds the incident serves as a "reminder that hate and bigotry continue to pose a genuine threat to the Muslim community. Surveillance footage shows the suspect pouring an accelerant on the back of the building before lighting it on fire. Police say the fire failed to take off, prompting the suspect to allegedly try to light it up a second time. An investigation is ongoing.
