Unidentified assailants threw gasoline bombs at mosque in a central Russian city early Sunday, the country's main Muslim organization said. The incident occurred in the city of Yaroslavl about 240 kilometers northeast of Moscow a day after the country's Muslims began observing the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, the Council of Muftis said in a statement posted on its Web site. The statement said the attackers smashed the mosque's windows and then threw Molotov cocktails at the building. Several cars parked nearby were also damaged, it said.
