Arson attempt at BU before controversial speech?

A speech by a Cairo native on the lack of human rights in Moslem countries had to be moved on Wednesday after a fire broke out in a restroom near where she was originally supposed to speak.

Nonie Darwish, a co-founder of Former Muslims United, was originally scheduled to speak at the College of Arts and Sciences, but her talk was moved to Hillel House because of the fire just 15 minutes before the start time now under investigation by the Boston Fire Department arson squad.
