Re: Shots fired at Quebec mosque, at least 5 killed...

When you think about how the Islamic prayer works, it's a truly grim picture to imagine this attack. Muslims use prostration during prayer and are usually turned away from any entrances to avoid distractions. The terrorist basically shot those worshippers in their backs. He never saw their faces.
