Fire at Muslim family's apartment in Windsor Mill investigated as bias crime


President Francois Hollande says France has “a problem with Islam” and that there are too many refugees arriving in the European country, sparking outrage among human rights groups

A fire at a Muslim family's apartment in Windsor Mill is being investigated as a possible bias-related crime, Baltimore County police say. 
The Council on American-Islamic Relations on Friday said the incident was one in a series targeting the family, and called for a thorough investigation.
 
Family members are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest, said Zainab Chaudry, Maryland outreach manager for CAIR.
 
"We just want authorities to do their due diligence," she said.
 
Cpl. John Wachter, a spokesman for county police, said someone entered the apartment in the unit block of Fallridge Court on Sept. 6 and set fire to something on the stove.
 
Wachter said "offensive writing on the wall" led police to classify the incident as a possible bias crime. He declined to elaborate, saying an investigation by the police department's arson unit is still open.
