5 Dead in Muslim Family London ON.Geoff Robins The Canadian Press

Police in London, Ontario Monday where a driver dliberately plowed his pickup into three generations of a Muslim family, killing four of them; one suspect is in custody. “This was an act of mass murder perpetuated against Muslims,” Mayor Ed Holder said. “It was rooted in unspeakable hatred.” Police declined to describe evidence that led them to that conclusion. Blue markers on the pavement show where the victims were standing at an intersection, waiting to cross during their daily family walk. Dead are the grandmother, parents and teenage daughter; her younger brother was in serious condition. The family immigrated from Pakistan 14 years ago and were well-established in the Muslim community, which numbers about 10% of the city’s population of 400,000. (Geoff Robins/The Canadian Press)
