 The mosque is being closed in Austria!

A mosque in the Austrian capital, Vienna, is being closed as a threat to national security following a deadly attack earlier this week.

The country's interior ministry said on Friday that more mosques would be closed in the future.

A ministry spokesman said more details would be released soon at a news conference with Home Minister Carl Nehamar and Integration Minister Susan Rabab.

A statement from Austria's officially recognized Islamic community said, "We are closing a mosque after discussions with the authorities." The statement added: "The mosque is being closed in violation of religious doctrine and its constitution."

Qatar-based Al Jazeera reports that four people were killed in Vienna on Monday, the largest attack in decades. A 20-year-old man named Kujtim Fezulai was blamed for the killings. The Austrian youth was killed in the police firing.
