“We condemn this terrorist attack on Muslims in a center of worship and refuge,” Trudeau said in a statement.
Five people were killed after gunmen opened fire in a Quebec City mosque, the mosque’s president told reporters on Sunday. A witness told Reuters that up to three gunmen fired on about 40 people inside the Quebec City Islamic Cultural Center.
“Why is this happening here? This is barbaric,” said the mosque’s president, Mohamed Yangui.
Quebec police said there were many victims and deaths, but did not confirm the death toll. They said two people had been arrested, but there were no immediate details on the suspects.
