Highlights: Tags related to the murder of young Thomas in the Drôme were discovered on the future mosque of Angers (Maine-et-Loire) under construction. The mosque in Angers, still under construction, was spray-painted with the words "Justice for Thomas," a reference to the 16-year-old.

Tags, related to the murder of young Thomas in the Drôme, were discovered on the future mosque of Angers (Maine-et-Loire) under construction, said Thursday the president of the Association of Muslims of Angers, after similar inscriptions and Islamophobic threats against two other mosques in France. "The mosque in Angers under construction has just been damaged once again," with the tags discovered on Monday, said Mohamed Briwa, confirming a report by the Courrier de l'Ouest.

"The inscription justice for Thomas discovered on the fence of the mosque was interpreted by the leaders and faithful as the desire of its authors to make the link between the tragic death of the young high school student and the Muslims," added the president of the Association of Muslims of Angers.

In addition to this inscription, portraits of the young Thomas were plastered with the words "Massacre of Frenchmen, stop! self-defense," according to Mohamed Briwa. "Blaming Muslims for Thomas' death is an intolerable injustice," he said, adding that a complaint has been filed.

This Saturday, Islamophobic tags were discovered on the walls of the mosque in Cherbourg-en-Cotentin (Manche) and a mosque in Valence (Drôme) received a threatening letter, both also in connection with the murder of young Thomas.
