STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - An arsonist set fire to a mosque in the Swedish town of Eskilstuna on Thursday, injuring five people, police said, an incident which comes amid an intense debate over immigration. The immigration debate has pitted the far right, which wants to cut the number of asylum seekers allowed into Sweden by 90 percent, against mainstream parties intent on preserving the Nordic country's liberal policy. Between 15 and 20 people were in the mosque, located in the ground floor of a building in a mainly residential area, when the fire erupted. #India #China #Brazil #France #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #opinion

Thousands pray at Indonesian mosque that survived, 10 yrs after tsunami

BANDA ACEH, Indonesia (Reuters) - Thousands of Indonesians gathered on Thursday to pray at a mosque that was one of the few buildings left standing in Banda Aceh, the city flattened by the Boxing Day tsunami that killed at least 226,000 people 10 years ago. Pictures of the 135-year-old mosque left isolated in a plain of desolation after almost everything around it was wiped away were among the most memorable from the disaster, caused by a freak wave triggered by a 9.1-magnitude earthquake off the coast of Indonesia's Sumatra island in 2004. #facebook #United States #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #markets #Italy #Latin America #Christmas #author #opinion
