An unidentified assailant fired a rocket-propelled grenade at a mosque in the southern Bosnian city of Mostar on Tuesday, but no one was injured, police said. The early morning blast caused serious damage to the mosque in the Bosnian-Croat part of the ethnically divided city, said police spokeswoman Lejla Trivic. No one was in the building at the time. Many Bosnian Muslims returned to their prewar homes in the Bosnian-Croat suburb of Jasenice and had repaired the mosque, which was damaged in the 1992-95 war. The head imam in Mostar, Salem Dedovic, called the attack disturbing, particularly since it happened during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
