Surveillance video at Salaam Mosque in northeast Minneapolis shows an individual smashing a glass door in the mosque.

Minnesota's leading Islamic civil rights group is asking for a hate crime investigation after a vandal struck a mosque in northeast Minneapolis early Sunday morning, shattering a glass door and shouting toward at least one startled onlooker inside.

The attack at the Salaam Mosque on Central Avenue came as the FBI released an annual report on bias motivated crimes showing the first decline in Minnesota in five years. The report also showed a dwindling rate of police agencies reporting such crimes to the FBI.
