L’attentatore di Ottawa stava facendo richiesta dei documenti per andare in Siria, ha detto la polizia federale canadese


The shooter who rampaged through Canada’s parliament was in Ottawa applying for a passport to travel to war-torn Syria and there was no connection to an attack earlier this week, the federal police commissioner said Thursday.

The man’s killing of a soldier at a cenotaph in the city’s downtown and storming of nearby parliament Wednesday were not linked to the deadly attack on a soldier in Quebec two days earlier, Royal Canadian Mounted Police Commissioner Bob Paulson told a news conference.

Investigators determined that the suspect in Wednesday’s shooting, identified by Paulson as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, had been in Ottawa since October 2 “to deal with a passport issue.”
