The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minneapolis announced Monday it is launching a formal investigation into the rejection of a proposed Islamic center in St. Anthony.

Jeanne Cooney, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, says the agency began a “preliminary” review of the case in June after the St. Anthony City Council voted down the proposed the Abu Huraira Islamic Center. Now the federal agency has “formalized the investigation” and is moving forward on it.

“I would consider this an administrative development,” Cooney said. “We continue to look into it.”
