Militia Group Leader Guilty Of Minnesota Mosque Pipe Bomb Attack : NPR

The leader of an anti-government white supremacist militia group and former sheriff’s deputy has been convicted of hate crime charges after a pipe bomb attack on a Minnesota mosque in 2017.

“Michael Hari’s goal in bombing the Dar al-Farooq Islamic Center was to spread hatred, instill fear, and threaten the constitutionally protected right to freedom of religion. This act of violence, driven by hatred and ignorance, shook our community,” U.S. Attorney Erica H. MacDonald said in a statement.
