Federal Bureau of Investigation releases annual report on hate crimes

Those criminal incidents, the report said, were motivated by bias toward race, ethnicity, ancestry, religion, sexual orientation, disability, gender, or gender identity, reports Xinhua news agency. Crimes were also committed against victims due to their religion or sexual orientation.

Authorities warn the actual number of hate crimes is likely much higher.

Muslims and Jews were the most common targets in the USA, with anti-Muslim bias making up the second highest religious bias at 25 percent behind anti-Jewish bias, which accounted for about 55 percent, making Jews the most targeted group in the U.S.

In a report, they said that the "actual number of hate crimes may be as high as 250,000 - more than 40 times the 6,121 incidents that the Federal Bureau of Investigation reports for 2016".

The report was based on data voluntarily submitted by about 15,000 law enforcement agencies.
