New York authorities are investigating a string of suspected hate crimes. Sunday night, someone hurled a Molotov cocktail at an Islamic cultural center just as members gathered for dinner.

Another bomb was thrown at a sign for the center's school. It was the third of four attacks overnight in Queens.

A house nearby was badly damaged by a suspected firebomb and a corner store was also targeted.

Two bombs that did not explode were thrown at a house used by Hindu worshippers.
