Canadian police say Muslim family targeted by deadly attack
TORONTO (AP) — A driver plowed a pickup truck into a family of five, killing four of them and seriously injuring the other in an attack that targeted the victims because they were Muslims, Canadian police said Monday. Authorities said a young man was arrested in the parking lot of a nearby mall after the incident Sunday night in the Ontario city of London.

The magnitude of such hatred can make one question who we were as a city.
