WASHINGTON D.C. — Tape and plastic have again been added to a broken window at a mosque in Northeast D.C. after vandals struck for the second time in a week. On Monday, the Ivy City Majid & Islamic Education Center, on Gallaudet Street, was found in disarray; shelves with holy books was in pieces and glass littered the ground. Then on Thursday, Mobaidin said, he arrived to find the mosque has been damaged again. Fencing used inside the mosque was broken; a podium was in shambles and a very large piece of religious artwork was stolen. [link]
