HOODED gunmen fired four shots at one of the main mosques in Spain’s North African enclave of Ceuta.
There were at least a dozen people inside the Muley el Mehdi mosque at the time, but no one was hurt in the incident, which happened in the early hours of Monday morning.
Worshippers are said to have run and hidden after the alarm at the incident.
Government sources say the duo had driven up on a motorbike before firing the shots at the façade then making their escape. At least three bullets hit the building.
National Police cordoned off the area and opened an investigation. The Muley El Medhi mosque, inaugurated in 1940, is the second most important in Ceuta and has a congregation of hundreds.
