    Back in 2010, al Qaeda called for terrorist recruits to use trucks to “mow down the enemies of Allah.” In 2014, the Islamic State (ISIS) told fighters if they couldn’t find an IED or a bullet they should kill unbelievers with a knife, rock, or poison, or “run over him with your car.”  True to form, in Nice, Berlin, Barcelona, Stockholm, and London, Islamic terrorists used vehicles to mount deadly attacks. Uzbek Muslim Sayfullo Saipov, acting on behalf of the Islamic State, used a rented truck to murder eight victims in New York City last October.  Monday’s attack in Toronto...

    CBS News sources identified the suspect as Alek Minassian, 25. U.S. law enforcement sources told CBS News that the incident appears to be a deliberate act. Minister of Public Safety Ralph Goodale said it was too soon to say whether the crash was a case of international terrorism. He said Canada has not changed its terrorism alert level and he has no information that would suggest a need to do so.

    A Toronto police officer who refused to shoot the man suspected of plowing a van into crowds of pedestrians on Monday, killing 10 people, was praised for restraint in the face of a suspect who claimed to have a gun. Video footage showed the police officer staring down the suspect at gunpoint in the middle of a street, while the man pointed what appeared to be a gun and shouted "Kill me." The video showed the suspect repeatedly pulling an object from his side and aiming at police. The arrest was praised as a welcome example of police restraint in...

    The calm actions of a police officer who arrested the Toronto van suspect without firing a shot have prompted praise and, in some quarters, astonishment. Video from the scene shows suspect Alek Minassian pointing an object at the officer and shouting: "Kill me!" The officer tells the man to "get down" and when the suspect says he has a gun, the officer repeats: "I don't care. Get down." Videos on social media show Mr Minassian lying down as the officer arrests him. Many in North America are asking how the suspect did not end up dead in a hail of...

    (CNN)Shortly before he allegedly killed 10 pedestrians Monday, Alek Minassian may have praised a man who vowed to "destroy" women who rejected him. "All hail the Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger!" reads a Facebook page believed to be Minassian's. The accolade apparently refers to the California killer who carried out a "day of retribution" in 2014.
