BERLIN— An Islamic cultural center in Berlin was attacked early Thursday with a Molotov cocktail, the sixth arson attack on Muslim institutions in the German capital this year, police said.

The general secretary of Germany's Central Council of Muslims has condemned the attacks.

"We demand police protection for all Muslim prayer houses in Germany and expect our politicians to act accordingly," Nurhan Soykan said.

An unidentified person threw a Molotov cocktail at the Islamic cultural center of the Iranian community in Berlin's Tempelhof neighborhood, police spokesman Thomas Neuendorf said.
