Three men arrested, charged in Minnesota mosque bombing

3 Suspects in Bombing of Minnesota Mosque Face Weapons Charges Muslim Leaders Speak About Bloomington Mosque Bombing Arrests

It is unclear why the suspects traveled more than 600 miles from their hometown of Clarence, Illinois, to allegedly carry out the attack against the mosque in Minnesota.

McWhorter admitted the involvement of the three men in the mosque bombing and the attempted bombing of the abortion clinic, as well as the involvement of all four men in a racially-motivated home invasion in IN and multiple Wal-Mart robberies in IL.

Federal authorities say the men were arrested Tuesday in IL on separate gun charges and that they were suspects in the mosque bombing.

Michael Hari, 47, Joe Morris, 22, and Michael McWhorter, 29, are accused of carrying out the attack on the Dar al-Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington, Minnesota, just before morning prayers on August 5 2017.

They and Ellis Mack, 18, also of Clarence, face a federal charge of possession of a machine gun, according to John E. Childress, U.S. attorney for the central district of IL. A fourth man was charged with a gun offense, but he was not identified as a suspect in the bombing or attempted bombing.

According to reports, one of the offenders, Michael B. Hari, drafted a $10 billion plan to build Trump's "Mexico wall" after starting up a security company, Crisis Resolution Security Services.

The affidavit said Mr. Morris later complained to a confidential law enforcement source that the device had not gone off and that he had no idea why.

A tip in December led authorities to investigate the three men, after a person sent the local sheriff photos of guns and bomb-making material inside Hari's parents' home, where Hari often stayed.

The complaint also said nothing about a possible motivation for the clinic attack. The pipe bomb, constructed of polyvinyl chloride, known as "PVC", exploded, causing extensive damage.

Hari allegedly told McWhorter's brother when he dropped off the guns, "The police will want to come talk to me; can I keep them here until I speak to them?" said the affidavit.

Anti-Muslim incidents rose sharply in the United States in the year after the 2016 US presidential election, according to a review by the Council on American-Islamic Relations. "At the same time, we have a lot of concerns, a lot of questions", said Mohamed Omar with Dar Al-Farooq.

Its national office also urged mosques and Islamic centers nationwide to increase security.

"A witness saw something being thrown at the imam's office window from a van or truck before the blast", Asad Zaman, director of the Muslim American Society of Minnesota, said at a news conference. The video didn't show the blast itself.
