In one of the worst acts of carnage in Canada, a van ploughed into pedestrians in a busy business district of Toronto, causing 10 fatalities and leaving 15 people injured.Witnesses said the driver was moving fast and appeared to be acting deliberately, but police officials would not comment on the cause or any possible motive.

Police have identified the suspect in a deadly van attack in Toronto as Alek Minassian, a 25-year-old man from Richmond Hill, Ont., a suburb north of the city.He continued for more than a mile, knocking out a fire hydrant and leaving bodies strewn in his wake.

Toronto Police chief Mark Saunder described the rampage as “deliberate” but said during a news conference that Minassian was not known to police nor was there any indication he was a member of any terror organisation.
