The Minneapolis chapter of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is now offering a $30,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible for the explosion at the Dar Al Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington, Minnesota, earlier this month.

The explosion occurred in the Imam’s office around 5:05 a.m. on Aug. 5, five minutes after the first morning prayers had begun. A preliminary investigation by the FBI indicated the explosion was caused by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED).
