A man has been arrested on suspicion of arson after a mosque and a Sikh temple in Leeds were set on fire, in what police have described as linked hate crimes.
The 42-year-old was arrested at an address in the city on Tuesday night after fires were started at the front doors of two buildings early that morning.
Police were called to the Jamia Masjid Abu Huraira mosque in Beeston at 3.42am on Tuesday morning, where the main door had been deliberately set on fire with a flammable liquid.
Firefighters extinguished the blaze before it had a chance to spread, and damage was confined to the door and surrounding brickwork.
