An arson attack was carried out on a mosque in France’s southeastern Albertville city on Monday night, the mosque said in a statement on social media.

According to the statement, the entrance of the mosque, run by the Milli Gorus Islamic Confederation (CIMG), was damaged in the attack and there were no injuries.

A person was seen on security cameras setting the door of the mosque on fire, it said, adding that the police were informed and a complaint was filed.

The statement said an investigation was launched into the incident and hoped that the perpetrators would be brought to justice.

The CIMG has been criticized by the government and politicians for refusing to sign the Charter of Islamic Principles of France on the grounds that it alienates Muslims.

The Arrahma Mosque in France’s Nantes city also came under an arson attack on April 9. Islamophobic graffiti was sprayed on the walls of a mosque in Rennes city twice in 20 days last month.
