What We Know So Far About Toronto Van Attack Suspect

TORONTO—Alek Minassian, the suspect charged with the April 23 incident where a van plowed into pedestrians on a busy Toronto street, made a brief court appearance on Tuesday, April 24.

Dressed in a white jumpsuit, Minassian, 25, spoke only his name. He is charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 counts of attempted murder.

Minassian’s LinkedIn profile lists him as a student at Seneca College from 2011 to this year.

Details emerged on Tuesday from the Department of National Defence that he was briefly a member of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) last year.

“He did not complete his recruit training and requested to be voluntarily released from the CAF after 16 days of recruit training,” said Jessica Lamirande, a spokeswoman with the Department of National Defence.

Minassian had attended Thornlea Secondary School in Richmond Hill, graduating in 2011, according to school officials, who declined to provide further details.

A Facebook post reportedly by Minassian shortly before the attack makes reference to the 2014 Isla Vista tragedy in California, where a gunman killed six people and injured several more before turning the gun on himself. In a video before the attack, the gunman said his reason was due to rejection by women;

Alexander Alexandrovitch, who says on his Facebook profile that he attended the same high school as Minassian, describes the suspect as “mentally unstable.”

“He was known to meow like a cat and try to bite people,” he wrote on Facebook.

The area surrounding Minassian’s family home in Richmond Hill, Ont., was closed off with police tape a day after the incident.

Neighbours said they didn’t know the family well and that they usually kept to themselves. The family is thought to comprise four people, with another young male besides Minassian living in the household.

“We have a very quiet community, and nobody really bothers anybody else very much,” Wes Mack, a neighbour of the family, told The Epoch Times.

“It’s very tragic, very, very sad, and it’s hard on the community as well.”

每年香港潑水節吸引萬名港人參與,體驗泰國文化。

活動今年首次從泰國人聚居的九龍城,移到荔枝角一連三天舉行。

最後一天先舉行古色仙女巡遊,共有12支隊伍參與。

巡遊隊伍當中包括Water Angels選美佳麗、以及泰國長鼓隊等等。

高潮是水戰派對,吸引過千港人帶小朋友參與。

你射我,我射你,大家玩得好開心

香港市民:今天天氣好過昨天,更加適合玩水,再熱一些更好。

明年會買一支更加勁的水槍,和人對決。

香港市民:第二次來潑水節。

相對之前九龍城?

方便一些,我們住在附近。

九龍城的氣氛好一些。

但知不知道潑水節內涵?

香港市民:不知道,只知道是泰國新年。

泰國的潑水節又稱「宋干節」,是泰國人的新年,每年在四月十三到十五日。

古時泰國傳統節氣,這三天在一年中最熱,也是農閒的時候,因此人們互相潑水祈福,象徵將過去一年霉運等通通洗去。

祈求來年煥然一新、順順利利,這就是潑水節的由來。
