Canada anti-Muslim attack: ‘It could have been any one of us’
Al Jazeera, 09 Jun 2021
A vigil has been held in Canada in memory of a Muslim family killed when the driver of a pick-up truck ran them over.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has called the attack on the Afzaal family in Ontario a "terrorist attack".
Police say the crime was motivated by anti-Muslim hate.
A 20-year-old man, Nathaniel Veltman, was arrested and charged with four counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder.
