TWO men have been arrested after six people were killed and eight wounded after gunmen opened fire on a mosque in Quebec in a horrific incident described by Canada’s prime minister as a „terrorist attack on Muslims“.
Emergency services were quick to attend the scene in Quebec, Canada
Police have set up a perimeter around the mosque and a number of ambulances are outside the Islamic cultural centre of Quebec in the Sainte-Foy neighbourhood as paramedics try to help the wounded.
A witness claimed there were about 40 people inside the mosque at the time of the shooting.
Maged El Makssoud lost friends in the gun attack, he said: “We are shocked, I hope that it is an isolated attack. It is a shame for the town, for the country, for the citizens and not just the Muslims because we love our town. We share the same values and we have a good life here.”
They do not believe anyone else was involved in the attack.
