A PANIC was caused outside a mosque in Spain yesterday after a mystery man fired four shots before speeding off.
The attack happened during dawn prayers when one – possibly two – assailants fired four rounds outside the Muley el-Mehdi Mosque, according to EFE news agency.
Luckily no one was injured at the place of worship in Ceuta, which is the largest of its kind in the Spanish-held territory.
Police have launched an investigation into the incident.
Eyewitnesses told the local El Faro de Ceuta newspaper that an assailant fired the shots before escaping on a motorcycle.
Some 40% of Ceuta’s inhabitants are Muslim.
