Two arrested after incident at Cardiff mosque

Two people have been arrested after allegedly forcing their way into a Cardiff mosque in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The incident took place at 1.30am at the Dar Ul Isra community centre.

In a joint statement with the Muslim Council of Wales, the mosque said: “Nobody from the mosque was injured and the police have arrested the two individuals who were involved.

“The police are now dealing [with] this situation and continuing their investigations.

“We thank South Wales Police for their swift response.”

For Muslims, it is currently the holy month of Ramadan when many fast from dawn until sunset.

It is traditional to gather in mosques and community centres to break the fast at the end of each day.
