MIAMI (AP) - The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations is asking the Department of Justice to investigate the discovery of a ceramic skull at a mosque in suburban Miami as a hate crime.

The group says that worshippers at the Islamic School of Miami discovered the skull late last week atop the mosque’s main entrance sign, as well as spray paint, a bible and other objects. A wooden cross with American flag sunglasses were also found inside in a donation box.

The incident occurred hours before hundreds of Miami-area Muslims were set to attend services for the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha.

The group says the same mosque has been previously targeted.
