REVERE, Mass. (AP) - FBI officials say they’ve joined an investigation by Revere police into anti-Muslim fliers found near a subway station earlier this week.

The special agent in charge of the FBI’s Boston office, Vincent Lisi, said Friday that authorities are trying to determine whether a civil rights violation occurred. He says the fliers were found Monday morning near the Revere Beach MBTA station. No arrests have been announced.

The fliers included threats of violence against Muslims. People outraged by the notes posted their own messages including “Stop the hate in our neighborhood.”

Lisi said he doesn’t believe the Revere fliers are related to offensive graffiti found at the Islamic School of Rhode Island in West Warwick last weekend.

Anyone with information about the fliers or graffiti is urged to call the FBI.
