Burned down mosque in Texas to be rebuilt after Americans donate over $800,000 in a day | The Independent

People have raised over $800,000 (£638,000) in the space of a day for a Muslim community in Texas to help rebuild their mosque after the building was destroyed by a fire on Saturday. The blaze was discovered at the Islamic Centre of Victoria at around 2:00am on Saturday by a clerk at a convenience store, who called the fire department. It took around four hours to extinguish the fire and no injuries were reported.
