A Canadian mosque was attacked last night in what Canadian officials are labeling a terrorist attack on the Muslim community. Details, per the Associated Press:

  • Six dead, 8 wounded. The dead ranged from 35 to 70 years of age.
  • 39 people escaped the mosque unharmed.
  • Two suspects have been arrested. Police say they don't believe others were involved, and they haven't named a motive for the attack.

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, in a statement, condemned the attacks:

"We condemn this terrorist attack on Muslims in a center of worship and refuge... It is heart-wrenching to see such senseless violence... Muslim-Canadians are an important part of our national fabric, and these senseless acts have no place in our communities, cities and country... Canadian law enforcement agencies will protect the rights of all Canadians..."
