6 Killed, 8 Wounded in Terrorist Attack on Mosque in Quebec

Two suspects were detained after a shooting at a mosque in Canadian city of Quebec left six people dead and eight injured, officials said early Monday.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the shooting a “terrorist attack on Muslims,” and offered his condolences.

“While authorities are still investigating and details continue to be confirmed, it is heart-wrenching to see such senseless violence. Diversity is our strength, and religious tolerance is a value that we, as Canadians, hold dear,” Trudeau said.

Trudeau called the attack “cowardly” in a tweet earlier in the night, ABC News reported.
