Fire at Mosque of Man Caught in Sting

Fire at Mosque of Man Caught in Sting 29 Nov 2010 Someone set fire to an Islamic center on Sunday, two days after a man [Mohamed Osman Mohamud] who worshipped there was accused of trying being drawn into the FBI's plan to blow up a van full of explosives during Portland's Christmas tree lighting ceremony. The fire at the Salman Al-Farisi Islamic Center in Corvallis was reported at 2:15 a.m., and evidence at the scene led authorities to believe it was set intentionally, said Carla Pusateri, a fire prevention officer for the Corvallis Fire Department.
