MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Police are investigating an incident in which anti-Semitic and racist words and images were scrawled on the door of a Minot church.

The Minot Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/2pcrMyN ) that the vandalism to the Church of the Living God occurred late Saturday or early Sunday.

The Rev. Ensley Windham says the church is a mixed non-denominational congregation, primarily black but with some white and Native American members.

The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, condemned the vandalism.

CAIR-MN executive director Jaylani Hussein says his organization extends its support to members of the Minot church and all North Dakotans trying to practice their faith.
