Australian PM condemns shooting at mosque

October 1, 2006 10:28

Australian Prime Minister John Howard on Sunday condemned a shooting at a west coast mosque, saying all Australians have a right to worship in peace. Police have yet to identify the gunman who fired into a crowded mosque in the city of Perth on Friday evening as 400 men, women and children observed the holy month of Ramadan. The offender fled in a car after a single shot, police said. No one was injured, but a witness said the shot narrowly missed worshippers and left children screaming. Howard described the shooting as a criminal act that should be punished.
