The Länsi Uusimaa Police tweeted two and a half days later after the Al-Ikhlas mosque was targeted by a firecracker that thrown late Friday night next to the Al-Ikhlas mosque in the Espoo neighborhood of Leppävaara. 

Contrary to the police, Supapress News from Finland in Arabic quoting the Al-Ikhlas Imam Abdul Hamid, reported that the mosque was a target of a “sound grenade.”

Fortunately nobody was injured, and hopefully, this type of attack will escalate into something more serious.
