Multiple Injuries After Bomb Detonated At Ontario Restaurant

Police are searching for two suspects.

Police say at least 15 people were injured, three critically, after two people detonated an improvised explosive in an Ontario restaurant.

The incident took place just after 10:30pm at the Bombay Bhel, an Indian restaurant in Mississauga.

Paramedics say that at least three people were taken to a trauma centre in critical condition, though their conditions are now considered stable, reports Toronto City News.

At least 12 others were treated for minor injuries at two local hospitals.

Police report that two suspects entered the restaurant and detonated the improvised device before feeling the scene.

The first suspect is described as male in his mid-20s with light skin, five-foot-10 to six feet in height with a stocky build. He was wearing dark blue jeans, a dark zip up hoodie pulled over his head, a baseball cap with a light grey peak and his face was covered with black cloth material.

The second suspect is described as a male with fair skin, five-foot-nine to five-foot-10 with a thin build. He was wearing faded blue jeans, a dark zip up hoodie pulled over his head, a grey t-shirt, dark coloured skate shoes and his face was covered as well.
