Local CAIR Chapter Asks Authorities To Investigate Threatening Letter


The Columbus chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations says it received a threatening letter Wednesday calling for more violence against Muslims and praising the New Zealand terrorist attacks on mosques. 

Chapter officials are asking federal and local law enforcement to investigate. Officials say the letter had a Cleveland postmark and no return address. Other chapters across the country have received similar threats.  The chapter has posted a photo of the letter and a statement on it's website: https://www.cair.com/cair_columbus_calls_for_fbi_probe_of_mailed_threat_praising_new_zealand_mosque_terror_attacks
