MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee Muslims who won a court battle to occupy their new mosque will have to wait a little longer while construction is finished.
Construction supervisor David Salimi said a codes inspector visited the site near Murfreesboro on Thursday morning but determined that it will take about two more weeks of work to be ready.
Members had hoped to be in the new Islamic Center of Murfreesboro by sundown Thursday, the beginning of Ramadan.
Mosque members and federal prosecutors persuaded a federal judge Wednesday to order the county to push ahead with approving the building for use. Mosque opponents waged a two-year court battle and won a delay in the opening earlier this month.
