6 dead, 2 arrested after shooting at Quebec City mosque per CBC News

The BBC report on the Montreal mosque shooting misses a piece of information that I found on CBC

'A witness, who asked to remain anonymous, told CBC's French-language service Radio-Canada that two masked individuals entered the mosque. "It seemed to me that they had a Québécois accent. They started to fire, and as they shot they yelled, 'Allahu akbar!' '

So maybe not the Islamophobic attack that the BBC are praying it was.

The CBC report may be incorrect of course but it's always fascinating to see why the BBC deem worth reporting.
