STOCKHOLM (AA): Unknown attackers pelted stones on a mosque and a linked Turkish cultural center in Stockholm on Sunday, an official at the center told Anadolu Agency.

The Rinkeby Mosque and its affiliated Turkish Culture Center came under attack during early hours of Sunday, the official, who wished to stay anonymous due to security concerns, said.

No casualties were reported since nobody was inside the building when the attack took place; however, windows of the buildings were broken.

Swedish authorities have launched an investigation to nab the suspects.
