Police investigate anti-Muslim flier at Louisiana mosque


BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) - Louisiana police are investigating an anti-Muslim flier pasted onto a sign in front of a mosque.

Bossier City spokesman Mark Natale said the letter-sized flier reads "Imagine a Muslim-free America."

Natale said a second flier reading "What made America great: Blood and Soil" had also been stuck onto the brick sign.

He said both fliers carry the name American Vanguard, which identifies itself on its website as a white nationalist group. The Southern Poverty Law Center has identified it as a white supremacist group.

Natale said identical fliers are available on the organization's website. American Vanguard did not immediately respond to an emailed query.

KSLA-TV reports that the Council on American-Islamic Relations is asking authorities to investigate the placement of the fliers as a hate crime.
