Cordoba, Mexico, has become a hub for Islamic extremism, with mosques and Islamic centers, including one near the city’s main train station.
One of the more well-known mosques, the Cordoba Mosque, opened in the town of Cordoba in 2002.
In 2016, the mosque was closed down after more than a decade of serving as a center for Islamic activity.
It has since been renovated and reopened as a mosque.
The mosque’s former imam was killed by suspected Islamic extremists in 2013.
The Islamic Center of Cordobas was also raided in 2017.
According to police, the suspected militants stole a car belonging to the center and the building.
The two men were arrested, but no one was hurt.
The investigation was reportedly conducted by the police, but the Islamic Center was closed for lack of evidence.
In March 2017, another mosque, the Alhamza Mosque in Cordobes, was destroyed by arsonists.
The arsonist was reportedly a member of a local Muslim militia, known as the “Gandhi Group.”
The militants burned down the mosque after the mosque had already been vandalized by masked militants.
The destruction of the mosque and the arson at the Al-Hamza mosque resulted in more than $100,000 in damages.
The militants reportedly burned the mosque because they were dissatisfied with its activities.
The group has been designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. and the EU.
