Gunmen assault Quebec City mosque during evening prayer. Multiple dead and injured.

Quebec City

A mosque was assaulted by 3 gunmen killing 5 and injuring an unnumberable amount more during evening prayer. The attack comes at a time where Quebec has seen a rise in Muslim migration as well as incidents of Islamophobia that have occurred with pig’s blood being splattered at a Saguenay region mosque, and a pig’s head left at a cultural center in recent years.

40 worshipers where inside the building at the time of the shooting with many desperately calling the Iman for help. Police have set up a perimeter and reported there have been arrests.

The story is still developing.
