Riot Outside Kenyan Mosque Linked to Terrorists

Muslims make up 11.2% of Kenya's population. And yet the country is already suffering from terrorist attacks and riots. But since Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance, I'm sure that things will calm down as Islam spreads.

MOMBASA, KENYA (FoxNews) – At least one police officer has been injured in a riot at a mosque linked to recruiting Islamic extremists in Kenya's coastal resort of Mombasa.

Police apparently are trying to break up a meeting Sunday inside the Masjid Musa mosque, which has been the recent site of violent confrontations between young Muslim radicals and police.

An Associated Press reporter saw a police officer being led out with a bloodied face, perhaps the victim of a stabbing.

Last October, gunmen killed a Muslim cleric and three others in a hail of bullets in Mombasa, sparking street violence by youths who accused the police of targeted killings of Muslim leaders.
