6 Killed in Quebec City Mosque Shooting
Gunmen attacked a mosque in Quebec City, Canada, late Sunday, killing six people and wounding eight others.
A police spokeswoman said two suspects have been arrested, but did not give additional information about their identities or motive.
The head of the Quebec Islamic Cultural Center said people were gathered for evening prayers at the time of the shooting. Fifty-three people were there, according to police.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemned the shooting as a "terrorist attack on Muslims," and stressed in a statement that his country values diversity and religious tolerance.
"Muslim-Canadians are an important part of our national fabric, and these senseless acts have no place in our communities, cities and country," Trudeau said.
In June 2016, a pig's head was left on the doorstep of the same mosque.
After Sunday's shooting, New York Mayor Bill De Blasio said his police department was providing extra protection for mosques in the city.
"To my fellow New Yorkers who are Muslim: New York City will protect you. The NYPD will protect you. We will fight all hatred and bias," he wrote on Twitter.
Refugee Supporters Launch 2nd Day of Anti-Trump Protests in US Cities
Thousands of demonstrators gathered Sunday near the White House in Washington, launching a second day of protests in cities across the United States against President Donald Trump's ban on travelers from seven Muslim countries.
Chanting "No hate, no fear, refugees are welcome here," protesters took aim at Trump's executive order, which blocks the arrival of all refugees to the United States for at least 120 days. It also bars visa holders from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Iraq, Sudan and Yemen for 90 days and bans Syrian nationals indefinitely.
Protests also were under way in New York's Battery Park, which overlooks the Statue of Liberty -- America's iconic beacon that has inspired and welcomed immigrants from across the globe for more than 140 years. Protests also were held in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Houston, Boston, Atlanta, Louisville and Detroit.
At the Battery Park protest, U.S. Senate Democratic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said he urged new Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly to take action in the dispute.
