Protest against Mosque may be Defined as Hate Crime
by Zoë Robert
Three pig heads and bloodied pages of the Koran were scattered across the plot of land allocated to the Association of Muslims in Iceland for the building of a mosque on Wednesday.
Professor at the University of Iceland's law department Björg Thorarensen says the incident could be classified as a hate crime but Benedikt Lund at Reykjavík Metropolitan Police told visir.is that it is unlikely that the case will be investigated as they don't have any evidence. The animal parts and pages of the Koran were discarded by City employees tasked with cleaning up the site after the incident.
According to Benedikt, the police officer on the scene said that there was some paper at the site but didn't know whether it was related to the issue.
