LILLE, France, June 18 (AFP) - Gun-shots were fired overnight at a mosque in northern France and racist graffiti daubed on its walls, police said Friday.  

Three bullet marks were found by the imam of the mosque in the town of Escaudain when he arrived for morning-prayers.

The graffiti included the Nazi "SS" symbol.   Last weekend a swastika and graffiti extolling Nazi Germany were sprayed on a mosque in the nearby town of Lens.
