NEW YORK (Reuters) - Authorities were investigating as a possible hate crime the discovery of uncooked bacon scattered on the grounds of a New York City park where Muslims gathered to celebrate the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, police said on Monday.
Festivities to mark
the close of Ramadan, when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk, on Sunday
had been publicized in local media and drew 1,500 participants to New
Dorp Beach Park on Staten Island, said Cyrus McGoldrick, spokesman for the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Organizers found uncooked bacon strewn about a small section of the park, New York City police said.
