A witness says a child’s birthday party was”destroyed” by the blast and describes seeing blood on the floor and people screaming.
Fifteen people have been injured after two men walked into an Indian restaurant and set off a bomb, Canadian police say.
The male suspects fled the scene after detonating what police have described as an “improvised explosive device” inside the Bombay Bhel restaurant in Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto, on Thursday at about 10.30pm (3.30am UK time).
“There is no indication that this is a terrorism act. There is no indication that this is a hate crime at this time. We haven’t ruled anything out as we start our investigation,” said police chief Jennifer Evans.”Every police resource is being used right now to locate the people responsible for this horrendous act.”
