5 Reported Dead In Canada Mosque Shooting


Police in Quebec City say shots have been fired at the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec on Sainte-Foy St. and five people are reported dead.

Quoting Reuters, Toronto Sun reports that multiple gunmen opened fire during evening prayers, killing five people.

Witnesses say about dozen people were wounded and some reports state two of three suspected gunmen have been arrested.

Police have set up a large perimeter in the area.

Quebec City police confirmed deaths and injuries, and said suspects have been arrested.

Last June, worshippers at the same mosque discovered the severed head of a pig left in front of one of the doors, wrapped in cellophane with bows and ribbon, and a card that said “bonne appétit.”

Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard condemned the attack, describing it as “barbaric violence.”
