Suspect in deadly Canadian mosque shooting charged with six counts of murder

The Guardian -- 

A 27-year-old man has been charged with six counts of first-degree murder over a shooting at a Québec City mosque during evening prayers which Canada’s prime minister called an act of terrorism against Muslims.

Alexandre Bissonnette was also charged with five counts of attempted murder in the shooting at the mosque late on Sunday.

Five survivors were still in critical condition and 12 others suffered minor injuries, University of Quebec Hospital Centre spokeswoman Genevieve Dupuis said Monday. The dead ranged in age from 35 to 65.
