MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Surveillance footage shows at least two people defaced a Tennessee mosque where bacon and graffiti were found.

The Daily News Journal reports the FBI is investigating the incident as a hate crime after the vandalism was discovered early Monday morning. Expletive-laden green graffiti messages were spray-painted in three places on the exterior of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro and bacon was wrapped around a door’s handles.

Surveillance video shows the individuals taking photographs of the defacement.

ICM members and other area residents gathered Tuesday for a vigil, before attempting to remove the spray paint from the property.
