During Friday prayers during Ramadan, two Finns drove next to the Al-Ikhlas mosque in the Espoo neighborhood of Leppävaara and threw inside two sound grenades at 11.20 pm, according to Finnish-based online publication Suapress News from Finland in Arabic.

The police arrived in 10 minutes after they were alerted.

Sheik Abdul Hamid, the imam of the Al-Ikhlas mosque, was quoted as saying in Daily Morocco that the sound grenades did not cause any damage or injured anyone

“A car stopped in front of the mosque and a deafening bomb was thrown, we saw a burst and then we heard the sound of an explosion outside the mosque before the vehicle burst”, said Sheik Hamid. “We have no idea of ​​the attacker or the attackers, and we do not have a surveillance camera because we have not yet received authorization in this sense.”

The two suspects are still at large.

A sound grenade emits a high 130db sound that may cause ear damage to humans.

Mosques in Finland have suffered vandalism attacks in Oulu and hate graffiti in East Helsinki.

    I see that you havent been in army, thats not exploded grenade. Any of pictures wont look at grenade at all. Those are some glass bottles.

    Source: Handled real ones in military service.

    I forgot to add that those look vaguely fragmentation grenades what are meant to kill. You talk “noise grenades” what does not exist, term is “flashbang” what are intended to overwhelm all senses prior attack and are non lethal and dont look like frag grenades.

    Intternetnetsi, with a quick google search you can find a variety of sound grenades meant for paintball and such games that explode with co2 gas and make a loud sound. Often they look like fragmentation grenades because, again, they’re meant for games that simulate military action.

    You say the throwers were Finns, but you don’t know that. You are trying to make this a racist crime, but you don’t have proper justification for your claim. You should not make things up. You just create unnecessary fear and tension, we don’t need it in Finland. Your reporting is irresponsible. Again!

    And also the sound grenade was not throw INSIDE the mosque. It’s not clear, if the mosque was the target.

      Tiina, I read your comments and I see a lot of hysteria that leads to the spread of “unnecessary fear and tenion.” You should ask parties like the Perussuomalaiset about spreading fear and hatred. And, by the way, I don’t have to deal with your hostility because I’m only wasting my time. Go to Hommaforum or ask Hannu where you can release your anger.

    Jonne90 then its not a grenade what is word reserved in military use. Seems that there was no grenade or attack in mosque. False news again. As police said there was pronbably somekind of fireworks launched nearby, police wont investigate.
