Many questions surround explosions at a mosque in Clifton this morning. 

Calls came into Cincinnati Police of an explosion at 3668 Clifton Avenue around 10:30 last night.  The explosions hit roughly two hours after evening prayers had ended. 

Police have not ruled out many causes of the explosions but all indications are pointing to the possibilty of a small bomb possibly a pipe bomb being thrown at the door of an adjoining building to the mosque.  Police say that there were two explosions, one at each building on the property owned by the Islamic Association of Cincinnati. 

There is damage to the door and some windows in front of the building.
