The Terroristic Act in Ontario:20-Year-Old Driver Has Crushed 4 Muslims to Death
The driver's name has already been announced. This is 20-year-old Nathaniel Veltman. After the attack, he proceeded further, in the direction of the shopping center, where he parked his car, and was arrested there. Veltman has no criminal record, was not a member of any extremist group and, according to preliminary data, did not use anyone's help when committing a terrorist attack.
“We have evidence that this is a planned terrorist attack motivated by ethnic hatred,” the Canadian police spokesman said. "These people were killed because of their Muslim origin".
The investigation is ongoing. Veltman is expected to face charges of 4 first-degree murder and one attempted first-degree murder. Perhaps he will also be charged with terrorism.
The Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he was horrified by the incident: “The hatred of Muslims is worthy of contempt. Islamophobia has no place in our society. All Muslims should know: our hearts are with you".
