5 dead in attack on mosque in Quebec City

The HillMultiple people were shot and killed Sunday, when gunmen opened fire on worshipers at a Quebec City mosque, the Montreal Gazette reports.

Despite attacking a mosque, the attackers appear to be muslims.

CBC News"It seemed to me that they had a Québécois 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.

CBC News appears to have updated their article to remove the names of the arrested. But with one of the people arrested named Mohamed Khadir and the attacker yelling "Allahu Akbar", the Islamic battle cry, the conclusion that it is another jihadi attack is inescapable.

UPDATE: Turns out Mohamed may not have been the shooter. No explanation for why Alexandre Bissonnette, who the police have charged with 6 counts of murder, would have shouted Allahu Akbar. But maybe one of the victims was shouting that in a plea for aid or something?
