Muslim Pleads Guilty to Arson at Crowded Seattle Gay Club on New Year’s Day
American-Libyan Musab Mohamed Masmari was arrested in February for torching “Neighbours” gay night club in Seattle on New Year’s Eve.
750 patrons were in the night club at the time.
Musab Mohamed Masmari, from Benghazi, Libya, was arrested en route to the airport.
A million dollar bond was set for Musab Masmari – citing risk of flight.
The Stranger reported:
Seattle police arrested Musab Mohamed Masmari this morning in association with the New Year’s Eve arson at Neighbours nightclub, says Detective Mark Jamieson.
The Seattle Police Department’s Arson/Bomb Squad had been working with a joint terrorism task force since the incident occurred in the early minutes of January 1, when someone poured gasoline down a flight of stairs in the packed gay bar and lit it ablaze. All 750 patrons escaped without injury.
Masmari had been arrested four times since May. He had been arrested for things like assault and property destruction.
On Friday Musab Mohamed Masmari pleaded guilty to setting a fire at “Neighbours” gay night club.
