Two suspects arrested after Quebec mosque shooting kills six, injures eight

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau denounced the shooting rampageat a mosque in Quebec City, Canada, as "a terrorism attack on Muslims" on Sunday.

Meantime, Quebec police say the situation is under control, tweeting "mosque premises secured, occupants have been evacuated". All occupants were evacuated, police said.

One suspect was arrested at the mosque, where police were called at about 8 p.m. local time, and the other turned himself about an hour later, Quebec City Police Inspector Denis Turcotte said.

The mayor of Gatineau, Quebec, near Canada's capital of Ottawa, said there would be increased police presence at mosques around his city following the attack. Adding to the shock and outrage is the fact that Quebec City, a metropolitan area of about 806,000 people, saw just two killings in all of 2015.

The 27-year-old appeared at Quebec City Court over the shooting which happened during evening prayers which were attended by some 50 people.
