Ottawa hate crime attacks investigated
Police in the Canadian capital Ottawa are investigating a series of hate crimes in which three Jewish centres, a mosque and a church were daubed with swastikas and racist graffiti.
Police believe the attacks are linked. They hope to identify the perpetrators from video footage.
A solidarity event took place at an Ottawa synagogue on Saturday.
Statistics show attacks against Canadian Muslims more than doubled between 2012 and 2014.
No group has so far said it was behind the attacks.
As well as the mosque and the Jewish centres, the church targeted has a majority black congregation.
