Fifteen people were injured on Thursday, May 24, in an explosion in Mississauga, a Canadian city located about thirty kilometers west of Toronto. The detonation occurred around 22:30 local time (Friday 02:30 GMT) in an Indian restaurant in the city, Bombay Bhel. According to Peel City’s ambulance service, three people have sustained serious injuries, but their condition is stable. One of them was conducted at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto.

The police are not yet able to indicate the cause of the blast but have posted images from surveillance cameras on Twitter showing two people wearing darkly hooded sweaters entering the restaurant, one of them they seem to carry an object. They are actively sought by the police. The attack has so far not been claimed.
A month ago, the city of Toronto had already been targeted: a man had driven his van over the crowd at lunchtime in Toronto, leaving ten dead and fifteen wounded.
