A severed pig's head was thrown at a mosque in Philadelphia, police said, amid fears of a rise in Islamophobia a week after a young Muslim couple were accused of shooting dead 14 people.

Surveillance video showed a red truck driving past the Al-Aqsa mosque in North Philadelphia and someone throwing an object out of the window on Sunday night, police said.

A caretaker discovered the pig's head early Monday, police said.
