The statement said the three men are suspects in the August 5, 2017, explosion at the Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington, Minnesota, and an attempted bombing of the Women's Health Practice in Champaign on November 7. The three men were the same trio charged with the Bloomington arson, plus Ellis Mack, 18, all of Clarence, a rural community about 35 miles north of Champaign-Urbana. One of the arrestees, Michael McWhorter, told authorities that the men had been involved in other violent crimes in central IL and Indiana.

A confidential source told authorities that Morris said he made the pipe bomb that McWhorter threw into the mosque.

The same day the tip was received, the Ford County Sheriff's Department, the University of Illinois Police Department, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation responded to the home addresses provided by the tipster. According to the court affidavit, Hari often stays at his parents' home because his home has no running water or electricity. He claimed that it was Mr. Hari's idea to target the mosque and that Mr. Morris had smashed the mosque's window with a sledgehammer, according to the affidavit.

In a March 10 police interview, Mack admitted to participating in a home invasion and robbery with the other suspects, authorities said.

The Minneapolis FBI office has shared little information about its investigation, including whether it has identified any suspects.

The Huffington Post reported that Hari was also a former sheriff's deputy and an IL contractor bidding to build President Trump's wall on the Mexican border. It accuses their departments of violating his constitutional rights by doing the food-safety certification work that his firm, Equicert, does.

Anti-Muslim incidents rose sharply in the United States in the year after the 2016 USA presidential election, according to a review by the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Hussein tells The Associated Press that Muslims are glad that the suspects are "no longer a threat to our community".

The Islamic Center primarily serves Somalis in the Minneapolis area and houses a mosque and religious school for children. Minnesota is home to an estimated 57,000 Somalis, the largest Somali population outside of east Africa, according to the MN State Demographic Center. It's unclear if the reward money will be paid.

Officials said at the time that witnesses saw someone throw something from a truck or van before the blast and saw a vehicle speed away afterward. The video didn't show the blast itself.
