A terrorist attack took place in a mosque in Quebec City on Sunday night, killing six and wounding eight more. Masked gunmen burst into an Islamic Center in a suburban area and opened fire as worshippers were finishing their prayers.

Two suspects were arrested but the investigation is ongoing. Police have not yet announced a possible motive for the crime. Others have speculated the attack was motivated by anti-Muslim sentiment.

“It seemed to me that they had a Québécois accent,” a witness told Radio-Canada’s French language service. “They started to fire, and as they shot they yelled, 'Allahu Akbar!' The bullets hit people that were praying. People who were praying lost their lives. A bullet passed right over my head. There were even kids. There was even a three-year-old who was with his father.”

The Quebec Islamic Cultural Center was targeted last year in a hate crime in which as pig’s head was delivered to the mosque along with a note reading “Bonne appétit.” The mosque reportedly has a small congregation of around 100 people, predominantly students from the nearby Laval University.

“It is heart-wrenching to see such senseless violence,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement. “Diversity is our strength, and religious tolerance is a value that we, as Canadians, hold dear.”
