Two Islamic centers in Northern California were the sites of possible hate crimes during the last days of Ramadan, law enforcement officials said.
A burned Qur'an filled with bacon was found outside a Sacramento mosque Saturday, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department said. It was hanging by a handcuff from a temporary fence outside the Masjid An-nur Islamic Center.
The center, which is the largest mosque in the greater Sacramento area, is next to a police station but it has been targeted in the past.
Another center was targeted about 20 miles west in Davis, California.
