On April 19, 2004 Reuters reported, "Vandals have burned the entrance to a mosque in eastern France and daubed swastikas on the walls, police said on Friday. A rubbish bin outside the mosque was set on fire in the early hours of Thursday and the flames damaged the entrance to the building in the town of Haguenau, just north of Strasbourg. Two swastikas and a Christian cross were also daubed on the mosque's walls.
