FBI to Investigate Harassment at Muslim Day-Care Center


St. Louis, Mo. – A St. Louis Muslim leader says the FBI is
investigating a series of harassment incidents at a suburban St. Louis day-care center operated by an Egyptian-born woman.

The day-care owner is an American citizen who recently opened the business in Weldon Spring. Her name was not released.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations says vandals have repeatedly placed dog feces near the front door of the center,
damaged a fence surrounding a play area and ignited fires on the front porch.

Meanwhile, leaflets left at the building have included racist messages. And the day-care center has also received hundreds of
phone calls from someone who hangs up when the woman answers.
