15 Hurt, 2 Suspects Sought in Canadian Restaurant Blast


Police forensic investigators collect evidence at Bombay Bhel restaurant, where two unidentified men set off a bomb late Thursday night, wounding 15 people, in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, May 25, 2018.

Canadian police on Friday were looking for two men thought responsible for an explosion of a homemade bomb that injured 15 people at an Indian restaurant in the Toronto suburb of Mississauga.

The device detonated Thursday night as two families hosted parties with children present. Police said two men, wearing hoodies, entered the Bombay Bhel restaurant, dropped the device and fled.

"There was no indication that this is a terrorism act," said Peel Regional Police Chief Jennifer Evans, who added that investigators "haven't ruled anything out."

Officials said three people were critically injured while the remaining victims sustained minor injuries. All of the injured were adults.

The blast comes one month after a motorist mowed down pedestrians in Toronto, killing 10 people and injuring 14 others.​
