No coverage, of course, in sharia-compliant left-wing mainstream media. Local papers cover the barest bones of the story, de facto journalistic practice when covering anything to do with the I-word. The motive, the why, is strictly verboten.
“Reporter’s questions,” or “the 5 W’s and the H,” have always been the standard of basic reporting. The 5 W’s and the H refers to the six questions that a reporter should answer in the lead paragraph of a news story. The questions are the following:

A Brooklyn man was arrested Friday after being identified as the suspect who started a fire at a Staten Island gas station.
Fakrol Islam, 26, was charged with arson, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief. The incident took place at a 7-Eleven gas station at about 1:50 a.m. on Monday, July 30, according to the New York Police Department.

Video footage released by the NYPD shows Islam putting gas in a gas can, pouring the gasoline around a pump, then torching a piece of paper and igniting a fire that spread around nearby pumps.
Islam is immediately caught in the huge flames.
The gas station’s fire-suppression system put out the flames, but Islam suffered serious internal injuries when he was engulfed with flames.
He is hospitalized at Richmond University Medical Center in serious but stable condition.
Patron Gerard Lara, who was pumping gas when the incident occurred, said he heard a pop and then saw flames, NBC New York reported.
He said: “I hear a bang. It sounded like metal-on-metal. Maybe 10 seconds later, I see a flame. My immediate reaction was to duck down behind my car.”
Lara said he was on the ground, forced to claw his way to safety.
