An unidentified attacker threw two firebombs into a mosque in southern France on Friday, in an attack that was condemned by the French president and prime minister. The attack on the mosque in Carpentras occurred around 6:15 p.m. and caused only minor damage, the Vaucluse regional government said in a statement. No one was injured. The attack was condemned by President Jacques Chirac and Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin, who are struggling to contain more than two weeks of rioting across the country. It was not immediately clear if the attack was directly linked to the wider unrest. Chirac "expresses his solidarity with town's the Muslim community and assures them that light will be shed on the circumstances surrounding this attack," his office said in a statement.
