Aus­tralian Mus­lim lead­ers are shocked over a fire bomb­ing out­side a Perth mosque but say the hate crime will not stop peo­ple go­ing about their ev­ery­day lives. A sus­pected petrol bomb ex­ploded out­side the Thorn­lie Mosque in Perth’s south as hun­dred of wor­ship­pers at­tended a prayer ser­vice on Tues­day night, but no-one was in­jured when the four-wheel-drive ex­ploded. The fire spread to three other ve­hi­cles, and anti-Is­lamic graf­fiti was writ­ten on a wall of the as­so­ci­ated Aus­tralian Is­lamic Col­lege in Thorn­lie. Po­lice are look­ing for three men seen run­ning from the area.
