Toronto shooting: ISIS claims responsibility for attack which killed two people and wounded 13

 

 

ISIS has claimed responsibility for a shooting in Toronto that killed two people and wounded a further 13 over the weekend.

The attacker “was a soldier of the so-called Islamic State and carried out the attack in response to calls to target the citizens of the coalition countries”, a statement by the Islamic militant group said.

It did not provide further detail or evidence for its claim, issued via its Amaq propaganda agency.

Investigators have yet to determine why 29-year-old Faisal Hussain fired a handgun into crowds in the Canadian city’s popular Greektown neighbourhood. He died after an exchange of gunfire with police.
