Vandals scrawled racist slurs and swastikas on a mosque in a town in eastern France, authorities said Wednesday. Authorities were alerted to the damage to the Muslim religious center in Toul on Wednesday. The center is the only Muslim place of worship in the town and is run by a local North African association. Graffiti, including a crude anti-Arab slogan and the phrase "White Power," covered the red brick building. A French government minister, Nadine Morano, spoke with the mosque's imam. A statement from her office says she condemned the attack and called for tolerance and dialogue. French media reported that the vandals also placed a pig's head and pig's feet on the door and shutters of the center.
