A group of unidentified persons carried out an attack on a mosque in Jaffna in the early hours of Saturday morning, in a spate of attacks carried out on Muslims places of worship and businesses across the island.

The Uthayan reported that the attack left the windows of the Kamaal Mosque in Navanthurai shattered.

The attack comes as several other Muslim establishments came under attack, with the flagship No Limit store in Panadura set ablaze in an alleged arson attack.
