    OTTAWA – The prime minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday condemned the terrorist attack carried out in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, who has made 18 dead, including two Canadians.

    Mr. Trudeau announced in a press release his deep sadness.

    “Canada condemns strongly the attack of hate. People should not live in fear for their safety and security, regardless of the country they live in or the places where they travel,”-he said.

    “These acts of cowards are intended to instill fear and to divide us, said Justin Trudeau. In the Face of hatred, we must remain united in the respect for the values of diversity, openness and inclusion.”

    The two canadian victims of the bombing murderer of Sunday evening, Billel Diffalah and Tammy Chen, have lived in Montreal.

    Mr. Diffalah, veterinary surgeon of algerian origin, arrived in Quebec in 2011. The man, 41-year-old employee at the Center for international studies and cooperation Montréal (IFC), had travelled to Burkina Faso for a one-year contract which was to end in November.

    The Ontario Tammy Chen has lived on several occasions in the metropolis at more or less long stays. Installed in Burkina Faso for more than a year, she had just married and was six months pregnant. Her husband Mehsen Fenaiche was also killed in the attack.
