QUESTIONABLE INTENT

Church Fires May Be Race-Related

Six predominantly black churches have been set ablaze in and around St. Louis this month, with Ebenezer Lutheran Church being just the latest. A reward of up to $2,000 is being offered for information leading to a culprit's arrest. While the intent of the fires is currently unknown, racial motivations are being explored, and the Anti-Defamation League expressed concern that African-Americans are being targeted.
