6 Dead, 8 Wounded In Shooting At Quebec Mosque
“Why is this happening here? This is barbaric,” said the mosque’s president
Six people were killed and at least eight others wounded when gunmen opened fire on a mosque in Quebec City during evening prayers on Sunday, in what Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called a “terrorist attack on Muslims.”
Although a witness told Reuters that up to three gunmen fired on about 40 people, mostly men, who were gathered inside the Quebec City Islamic Cultural Center, police said only two people were involved in the attack.
The two suspects were arrested, officials said, one following a police chase that ended late Sunday, the CBC reported. According to reports from the local news outlet La Presse, the shooting was being treated as a “terrorist attack.”
“Why is this happening here? This is barbaric,” said the mosque’s president, Mohamed Yangui.
Yangui, who was not inside the mosque when the shooting occurred, said he got frantic calls from people at evening prayers. He did not know how many were injured, saying they had been taken to different hospitals across Quebec City. …
Incidents of Islamophobia have increased in Quebec in recent years. In 2013, police investigated after a mosque in the Saguenay region of Quebec was splattered with what was believed to be pig blood.
