A knifeman “dressed in medieval clothing” went on a stabbing spree in Canada’s Quebec that left two dead and reportedly five injured. Quebec is a predominantly French-speaking province in eastern Canada.
Security has been beefed up in the Parliament Hill where the incident took place and emergency services were rushed to the scene of the incident.
The incident comes after two attacks shook France, insisting authorities to raise alarm and security threat level in the country to “emergency”, the maximum one. On Thursday, a knife-wielding attacker killed three people at a church in France’s Nice city.
