In India in 1993 the destruction of the mosque in Ayodhya was followed by riots. During the conflict in the former Yugoslavia, Serbs have deliberately sought to eliminate any trace of mosques as part of the process of ethnic cleansing. Once the mosque has been destroyed, many of them centuries old, the land if replanted with fresh trees. In 1994 over 40 Muslim worshippers were shot in the back whilst at prayer during Ramadan by a single Jewish extremist at the Ibrahim Mosque located at the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron. Some 200 others were wounded, notably in the riots that followed. From an Islamic perspective this is considered an act of the greatest infamy. Access to the Tomb was guarded by Israeli soldiers. The shrine is revered by Muslims, Jews and Christians; Jews also pray there on a regular basis.
