A Moray man has appeared in court after Elgin Mosque was vandalised.
Mark McPherson appeared in private at Elgin Sheriff Court yesterday, accused of malicious mischief and breaching his bail conditions.
The 42-year-old, from Elgin, made no plea or declaration during the private hearing and was released on bail.
His appearance comes after swastikas and offensive words were spraypainted on to the walls of the mosque.
The vandalism led to widespread condemnation from local community leaders and First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.
