YORK, S.C. (AP) – Residents of a Muslim enclave in South Carolina want to meet with law enforcement authorities to discuss suspicious activity and their worries of potential attack.
The Herald of Rock Hill reports (http://bit.ly/1POKw90) that residents of Holy Islamville outside York are set to meet with law officers as early as Monday.
Islamville has dozens of homes, a school and a mosque.
FBI wiretaps from agents in South Carolina recently uncovered a potential scheme to target Muslims for attack.
Islamville Mayor Ramadan Sayeed Shakir says in recent weeks people have thrown crosses onto the property after holding a silent demonstration outside the gates. He says passersby have shouted racial and religious slurs for years.
A York man last year pleaded guilty to firing guns near Islamville and was fined $500.
