Man charged with threats to St. Louis Co. mosque

Tuesday, 22 October 2013 03:41 Published in Local News

   HAZELWOOD, Mo. (AP) - A Florissant man has been charged with making terrorist threats at a St. Louis County mosque.

   Forty-five year old Talib Al-Ganzawy was arrested and jailed on a $50,000 bond. Hazelwood police say Al-Ganzawy had a business dispute with board members at the Muslim house of worship.

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the suspect threatened to "shoot up" the mosque. He was not armed when arrested.

   A mosque spokesman says Al-Ganzawy was not a member but had asked for help to settle a landlord-tenant dispute. The board declined to intervene.

   Al-Ganzawy remained in jail Monday after a scheduled court arraignment. Online court records did not list an attorney on his behalf.

 

   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Thousands of disappointed Illinois residents are expected at the state Capitol to rally for same-sex marriage.

   Organizers say several thousand people are expected to take part in the "March on Springfield" -a grassroots effort to urge the passage of same-sex marriage legislation in Illinois.

   The Illinois Senate approved the measure last February, but the measure has stalled in the House. Speaker Michael Madigan has said about a dozen votes are still needed.

   The event will begin with a noon concert followed by a rally at 1 p.m. and a 2:30 p.m. March. Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin and Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn are participating in the event. The governor says he will sign legislation if passed by the General Assembly.

   Currently 13 states and the District of Columbia allow gay marriage.

 

 

   Phineas the dog, a golden lab who's been the focus of controversy in Salem, Missouri, is probably still alive.  

   The dog was stolen from the veterinarian's office where he'd been staying since shortly after Salem Mayor Gary Brown ordered him destroyed because the dog allegedly bit a 7 year old girl in 2012.  

   Phineas' owners and their attorney Joe Simon had expressed fears that someone had taken the dog and destroyed him.  But Simon told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Monday that a letter was received Friday indicating that the dog is being kept in hiding by someone who believes they're helping the animal.  

   Last Thursday, a canine bite expert  and veterinarian both testified that photographic evidence indicates that Phineas isn't the one who bit the child.  The court case is ongoing.
