JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) -- Hundreds of people have turned out for a rally aimed at showing solidarity with area Muslims whose mosque was destroyed in a suspicious fire.
The Neighbors-Joplin Mosque Rally was organized by Ozark Christian College student Ashley Carter and held Saturday evening in Joplin.
The Islamic Society of Joplin's mosque was destroyed in a fire Aug. 6. No one was injured. The mosque served about 50 families. Federal investigators say they've been unable to determine the cause of the blaze, though the investigation remains open. Another fire at the same mosque July 4 was determined to be arson. No one has been arrested.
