UK minister: Mosque arson 'provocative'

June 10, 2011 8:40 P.M. (Updated: June 11, 2011 9:28 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) -- UK Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt on Thursday condemned the torching and vandalizing of a mosque in the West Bank village of Al-Mughayyir.

Villagers said the arson was carried out by local settlers, who spray painted in Hebrew the words "price tag" and the name of a recently evacuated settlement outpost on the walls of the mosque.

Burt said the act appeared to be "the latest of a series of similar attacks aimed at exacerbating tensions and preventing progress in the peace process."

He urged Israeli authorities to investigate the "provocative crime" and to bring the perpetrators to justice.
