There is “no evidence at this stage” that the suspect in Wednesday’s shootings in Ottawa had connections to a wider group of Jihadis, Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Thursday.
“Obviously there’s an investigation going on, and we hope to learn more in the, in the coming days,” he said.
Amanpour asked whether Canada had “ruled out” Michael Zehaf-Bibeau’s ties to a network of Jihadis.
“I think that’s something the authorities are looking at right now,” he said.
Several American sources have told CNN that Zehaf-Bibeau had “connections” to jihadists in Canada, though it is not clear how deep those connections might have been.
