Canada, bomb in an Indian restaurant: suspected bombers on the run

At least 15 injured

Two hooded men entered yesterday at approximately 10:30 pm (local hour) Bombay Bhel Indian restaurant in Mississauga, in the west part of the Toronto metropolitan area (Canada). According to local authorities, the alleged terrorist attack would have caused at least 15 wounded, immediately transported to hospital. Among those affected, three are in serious condition and have been transferred to the specialized "Toronto Trauma Centre".

The Peel Regional Police has released images of the two alleged bombers, currently on the run. The agents then launched an appeal on Twitter, inviting Internet users to collaborate with the authorities in identifying the two "light-skinned" men who broke into the local situated in the Canadian province of Ontario. The two were immortalized by video surveillance cameras and the images were disseminated accompanied by detailed descriptions.

Only a month ago in Canada Alek Minassian, a 25-year-old student of Armenian origin, had launched into the crowd with a van killing 10 people and wounding 15 others. The man had stepped the sidewalk with his vehicle in the famous Yonge Street while the G7 Foreign Ministers meeting was underway in the city. At the time the authorities did not excude that it could be a terrorist attack even if the most accredited hypothesis remained that it has been a mad gesture.

It is likely that following the event, also due to the condition of fugitives of the alleged bombers, the security measures of the country will be increased and strengthened.
