Quebec provincial police say six people are dead and eight were wounded after shots were fired inside a mosque on Sunday night during evening prayers.
Both Candian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Quebec government have called the shooting an act of terrorism.
Quebec City Police Const. Étienne Doyon said mostly men were gathered inside the Islamic cultural centre of Quebec in the Sainte-Foy neighbourhood when the shooting began just before 8 p.m.
The president of the centre, Mohammed Yangui, said at least five people were killed, but that information has not been confirmed by police. more
