Man charged after allegedly driving into Muslim family
A 20-year-old man was charged with four counts of first-degree murder and one of attempted murder after driving his pickup truck into a Muslim family in what police described as “a premeditated attack”. A grandmother, mother, father and their 15-year-old daughter were killed last Sunday night when Nathaniel Veltman ploughed his vehicle into a group of pedestrians in the city of London, Ontario. The lone survivor, a nine-year-old boy, was in hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The London police service chief, Steve Williams, said “the victims of this horrific incident were targeted because of their Islamic faith”.
