Following an arson attack against a Turkish Islamic association in Kufstein three suspects, aged 15, 18, and 21, have been taken into custody. The three suspects were arrested only a few days after the attack of 16 January 2011, during which a fire was lit outside both entrance doors of the mosque.
The suspects admitted their guilt after having been arrested by police. They explained how they had fabricated a “kind of Molotov cocktail” which they then threw against the mosque. According to one source, one of the suspects admitted a racist motive for the attack, which was then corroborated by one of the other two suspects. The police are equally holding the three suspects responsible for recent neo-Nazi graffiti in Kufstein.
