A mosque in the West Bank town of Huwara has been vandalised and two cars set alight.

Palestinian officials say the perpetrators were from a nearby Jewish settlement. The Israeli army has condemned the incident but says it doesn't know who the attackers were.

According to eyewitnesses, armed Israeli settlers came to the village at dawn on Wednesday and scrawled objectionable graffiti on the mosque wall.
