At least five people were killed and several others wounded tonight (January 29, 2017) after gunmen opened fire at worshipers during evening prayers at a mosque in Quebec City, Canada, according to the AFP (Agence France-Presse) website.
A Quebec police spokesman said two suspects in the shooting were arrested, and a third suspect is believed to have fled the scene.
A few dozen people were inside the Islamic Cultural Center when the shooting began just after 8:00 p.m. tonight.
Quebec's prime minister, Philippe Couillard, posted on Twitter that the government was "mobilized to ensure the security of the people of Quebec." He added, "Quebec categorically rejects this barbaric violence."
