Six humanitarian aid workers from Quebec were among 28 people killed in Saturday’s terrorist attack in the capital of the west African country of Burkina Faso.
Four attackers with ties to al-Qaida were killed by security forces.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said there is no place in the world for such “senseless acts of violence on innocent civilians,” and sent condolences to the families of the victims.
Interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose says the deaths of the six Canadians shows that Canada must do more to fight terrorism.
