NY police say man confesses in firebomb on mosque

NEW YORK - A New York City man confessed on Tuesday to a series of Molotov cocktail attacks that hit a mosque and a Hindu place of worship and unsettled civic leaders concerned that the actions might portend violent religious bigotry.
Police brought the suspect in on Tuesday as a "person on interest" in the Sunday night attacks and he confessed after questioning, police said.
"The individual is implicating himself in each of the five firebombing cases, citing personal grievances with each location," said police spokesman Paul Browne.
