Prosecutor: NJ synagogue was firebombed
Prosecutor: Firebombs caused early morning fire at New Jersey synagogue
By The Associated Press

RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) ' Authorities in northern New Jersey say someone threw several Molotov cocktails and other explosive devices into the second floor residence of a synagogue early Wednesday.

Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli says the incident is being investigated as an attempted murder and bias-related arson. The prosecutor says lit aerosol cans also were used in the attack.

The fire occurred at Congregation Beth El at about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday. It's the latest in a series of incidents targeting synagogues in Bergen County. Molinelli didn't say whether Wednesday's incident is related.

Rabbi Nosson Schuman tells CBS 880 Radio that he saw a flash of fire outside his bedroom window before his bedspread caught fire. The rabbi says he got his wife and five children out of the building safely.
