JASPER, Ala. (AP) - Authorities are investigating a fire bombing
at a Catholic church in Jasper.
Officials say what appears to be a gasoline bomb was thrown
against the front door of St. Cecilia Catholic Church early Sunday
morning. The bomb caused a small blaze that left minor damage to
Church pastor the Rev. David Buchanan said the church has
received no threats.
He said he has hired a security guard to patrol the church grounds at night.
Buchanan said he believes someone tried to throw the bomb through the front window of the church but a thick outer window prevented that.
The incident is being investigated by local, state and federal agents.
