Canada is in shock after a soldier was shot and killed by a gunman in the capital city of Ottawa, while shots were also fired inside the Parliament. Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a Canadian who had recently converted to Islam, fatally shot 24 year-old Corporal Nathan Cirillo, who was standing guard at the War Memorial.
The gunman then ran inside the Parliament and exchanged gunfire with guards before Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers shot him dead. Additional gunmen attacked a nearby mall, injuring three. The attacks came on the same day as Prime Minister Stephen Harper was scheduled to give Nobel Peace Prize recipient Malala Yousafzai her Canadian citizenship. It’s still unknown if the attack was linked to the speech in any way.
