Minneapolis mosque arson suspect charged with federal hate crime


U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger said Thursday that Jackie Rahm Little could face additional civil rights charges by the time the investigation is finished.

Jackie Rahm Little, the man accused of setting fires at two Minneapolis mosques, was charged Thursday with a federal hate crime for intentionally damaging religious property.

The hate crime charge is on top of an existing arson charge. At a news conference, U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger said prosecutors are considering additional civil rights charges.

"The investigation of Little is continuing, as we seek to learn more about his motivation and actions," Luger said.
