Canada grieves after Muslim family killed in suspected hate attack

People are seen at a makeshift memorial at the crime scene in London, Ontario, Canada June 9, 2021. The community gathered to remember three generations of a Canadian Muslim family killed in what police said was a premeditated hate crime. On Sunday, four members of the family were killed as they were out on an evening walk near their home, when police say a man rammed them with his pick-up truck, targeting them because of their religion.
