ONTARIO, Canada — A manhunt is on in Canada after two men detonated an “improvised explosive device,” injuring 15 people late Thursday inside a restaurant in Mississauga, Ontario, police said.

Two men detonated an “improvised explosive device” on Thursday, injuring 15 people inside a restaurant in Mississauga, Ontario, police said.

The suspects walked into the Bombay Bhel Indian restaurant in the Toronto suburb around 10:30 p.m., and detonated the device, then fled, Peel Regional Police said.

Surveillance photos show them wearing jeans and dark-colored hoodies. One had his face covered with a black cloth, police said.

Among those injured, three people suffered critical injuries and were taken to a Toronto trauma center, officials said.

Their injuries were “consistent with those of an explosion,” said Brian Gibson, deputy chief at Peel Regional Paramedic Services.

    While absolutely nothing is known about this alleged attackers, here go the ill informed Islamophobia and anti-immigrant comments! Any educated person knows that Islam is a religion of peace. An immigrants are NOT criminal. When are we finally going to do away with borders and realize we are just one global community?

      I’m not talking about the bombers silly. They’re probably just the local citizens. I’m talking about the Bombay Bhel restaurant that’s causing the diversity issues.

    I see diversity is working as well for Canada as it has worked for us. Canada, you have no idea what you’re up against. Enjoy your open door immigration policy. I know we are!
