Canadian Prime Minister to Visit Mosque in Wake of Terrorist Shooting Incident

Six people have been killed and eight injured in a shooting at a Quebec City mosque during evening prayers.

Two arrests were made in what Canada’s prime minister called an” act of terrorism”.

They have been named by court officials as Alexandre Bissonnette and Mohamed el Khadir. Bissonnette is believed to be French-Canadian and el Khadir is said to be of Moroccon heritage.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is to travel to Quebec City in the wake of the mosque shooting.

The PM is due to address parliament before visiting the Quebec City Islamic Cultural Centre.

“We condemn this terrorist attack on Muslims in a centre of worship and refuge,” Trudeau said in a statement following the attack.

The attack came after Trudeau said Canada would welcome refugees that were blocked from the US after Donald Trump signed an executive order imposing a 90-ban on seven Muslim-majority nations.
