Two men pleaded guilty Monday to firebombing a storefront mosque that was reduced to rubble with black swastikas spray painted on it. A federal indictment said the two and a third defendant also tagged "White Power" on the outside of the mosque before torching the building with Molotov cocktails. No one was injured in the February fire that burned down the Islamic Center of Columbia, about 40 miles (65 kilometers) south of Nashville. Jonathan Edward Stone, 19, and Michael Corey Golden, 23, both pleaded guilty in federal court to one count of destruction of religious property and one count of use of fire to damage religious property, both civil rights charges. A sentencing date has not been set for the men, who each face up to 30 years in prison.
