A MAN accused of driving down and killing four members of a Muslim family in London, Ontario, was charged with terrorism by Canadian prosecutors today.
The prosecution said that Nathaniel Veltman’s four counts of first-degree murder constituted an act of terrorism — upgrading those charges under Canada’s criminal code.
Police allege the incident was a planned and premeditated attack targeting Muslims.
Mr Veltman also faces one count of attempted murder due to terrorism activity.
The upgraded charges were laid as Mr Veltman made a brief court appearance via video this morning. He has yet to enter a plea.
Salman Afzaal, 46, his 44-year-old wife Madiha Salman, their 15-year-old daughter Yumna and her 74-year-old grandmother, Talat Afzaal, were killed while out for an evening walk on June 6.
The couple’s nine-year-old son, Fayez, was seriously injured but is expected to recover.
