Midwestern Somali Restaurant Set Ablaze After Nazi Symbols Found

A Somali restaurant in Grand Forks, North Dakota was set ablaze early Tuesday morning, according to the Grand Forks Herald newspaper.

Police were investigating the incident, which was reported just after 2 a.m. and caused some $90,000 in damages at Juba Coffee & Restaurant.

The Herald reported that law enforcement was already looking into a possible hate crime that occurred at the restaurant days earlier, when Nazi symbols were found painted on the restaurant’s exterior along with the words “go home.”

Authorities told the newspaper that they haven’t yet determined whether the incidents were connected.
