Five people are confirmed to have been killed by two masked men yelling “Allahu akbar”
Many more have been injured, witnesses say there was 80 to 100 Muslims praying in the church when the shooting took place.
A witness, who asked to remain anonymous, told CBC’s French-language service Radio-Canada that two masked individuals entered the mosque.
“It seemed to me that they had a Quebecois accent. They started to fire, and as they shot they yelled, ‘Allahu akbar!’ The bullets hit people that were praying. People who were praying lost their lives. A bullet passed right over my head,” said the witness.
“There were even kids. There was even a three-year-old who was with his father.”
