    A prayer vigil was held outside of the restaurant Petra near 21st and Woodlawn on Friday. The restaurant was destroyed in a fire earlier this week and the words “Go Back” were found spray-painted behind the building. The owners of Petra are from Syria and Jordan. The cause of the fire still has not been determined. (Travis Heying/The Wichita Eagle)
