DUBAI: Anti-Muslim vandals have scrawled racist graffiti on a mosque in Spain and marched on another after Thursday’s terror attack in Barcelona.
The Seville Mosque Foundation’s center was targeted with hate speech, including phrases such as “killers, you’re going to pay.”
According to the MailOnline, the graffiti also included threats to behead Muslims.
A mosque in Granada was also attacked with flares.
Footage of the incident shows families fleeing as orange smoke fills the area while people chant slogans against Muslims.
A group of people approached the mosque holding a banner that said: “Whoever finances this mosque, finances terrorism.”
The group was reportedly driven away by police.

A witness told the MailOnline: “People started to hear xenophobic chants and these ‘beings’ appeared. Tourists in the mosque’s yard and entrance started running away.
“Kids, families. The people of faith there closed the doors from inside as these neos (Neo-Nazis) were doing their chants. They then tried to enter, or so it seemed. To insult or to attack I couldn’t tell. But these people are not nice at all.”
Spokesman for the mosque Jalid Nieto told the MailOnline he had reported the gang to the police.
“They are taking advantage of Thursday’s terror attack, which pains us and has left us devastated, to try to make ideological capital.
“People should understand that Muslims, just like any other person, can be victims of the injustice of the individuals behind Thursday’s attacks.”
