Mosque in Texas burnt to the ground after Trump announced Muslim ban
It's been a week since the U.S. President announced his controversial travel ban on seven mainly Muslim countries. Just hours after the executive order was announced, a mosque in a small Texas town burned to the ground. The cause of the fire is still being investigated, but it has prompted an outpouring of sympathy for the Muslim community.
