Suspect detained in deadly Quebec mosque shooting

Couillard said he would "not go there" when asked if he blamed rhetoric in in the U.S. "Quebec is a good, generally loving society but we have these devils as other societies have".

Police said they were confident no other suspects were involved in the attack.

The Islamic Foundation School, located on Markham Road near Sheppard Avenue, told CTV News Toronto Monday that they've hired a private security company as a precaution after six Muslims were fatally shot during prayer services at a mosque in Quebec City Sunday night. Some of the wounded were gravely injured, Quebec provincial police spokeswoman Christine Coulombe said early Monday.

The victims were identified as men who ranged in age from 35 to 60.

During his daily press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer used the attack to justify Trump's controversial travel ban for immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries, calling it "a awful reminder of why we must remain vigilant and why the president is taking steps to be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to our nation's safety and security".

French President Francois Hollande condemned the "odious attack" on the mosque and offered support for Canada's leaders.

Trump also "offered to provide any assistance as needed". "This is barbaric.we are sad for the families", Trudeau said in a statement following the shooting.

"While authorities are still investigating and details continue to be confirmed, it is heart-wrenching to see such senseless violence". Diversity is our strength, and religious tolerance is a value that we, as Canadians, hold dear.

Unlike US order, Iran's ban against Americans will not be 'retroactive'
Trump never expected to win and you know he won and he sort of cobbled together this team that helped him in the election. He said the Trump's decision "shows baselessness of the United States claims of friendship with the Iranian people".

"It's really important for communities to come together at times like this so that's why it was important for us to make sure that different communities, not only the Muslim community in Calgary but different communities to stand for this and we've had a lot of people reach out to us", said Iman Bukhari with the organization. "You are home", Couillard said.

In July, during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, a gift-wrapped pig's head was left at the front door of the Quebec City mosque that was attacked. Witnesses described chaos as worshippers scrambled to find friends and loved ones, while police responding to the scene and called for backup. Practicing Muslims do not eat pork. "Solidarity with Quebec people of Muslim faith".

Mayor Gregor Robertson and Vancouver Police Chief Adam Palmer are expected to attend, Khan says.

Trudeau called the shooting a "terrorist attack".

The Jamia Ahmadiyya Canada Institute of Islamic Studies in Vaughan has also increased its security at mosques across the country.

Dridi, who lives near the centre, said he knew at least two of the men who were killed in the shooting. "I think the extreme rhetoric that the president.has been spewing out.probably have encouraged those people to do the crime that they did", Jammal said. "If you slay a person, it's as if you've slain all of humanity, but if you save somebody, it's as if you've saved all of humanity", Khan says.

Labeaume said a vigil will take place in Quebec City on Monday evening, and another meeting is set for Tuesday to discuss steps moving forward, including additional safety measures for the community.
