    QUEBEC – The Quebec flag on the central tower of the parliament building will be at half-mast on Wednesday following the attack that occurred in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, on Sunday.

    “The president of the national Assembly [Jacques Chagnon] would like to offer, in his name and in the name of his parliamentary colleagues, his sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims, more particularly those of the two canadian victims and strongly condemns these acts of violence,” wrote the national Assembly by press release.

    Eighteen people were killed on Sunday evening, Ouagagoudou, Burkina Faso, when two armed men opened fire on customers in a restaurant.

    One of the two canadian victims of the bombing murderer lived in Montreal for six years and the second had developed community-based projects.
