WATCH: Canada's PM Speaks After Deadly Attack in Ottawa

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper will speak about a deadly attack in Canada's capital city on Wednesday. A soldier was shot and killed at the National War Memorial in Ottawa, and dozens of shots were fired inside the nearby Parliament building, where members of the legislature barricaded themselves in rooms to escape the violence, authorities and witnesses said. A gunman who was shot and killed by security forces has been identified by a U.S. official as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, 32. Canadian media, quoting an aunt, identified the victim as Cpl. Nathan Cirillo. Hours later, downtown Ottawa remains on lockdown and the motive behind the attack is not clear. President Obama called the attacks "outrageous" in a phone call with Harper. The attack comes two days after a man ran down two Canadian soldiers in his car in Montreal in what authorities called an apparent terrorist attack. Read »
