Canadian Soldier Dies in Car Attack Linked to Radical Islam

A Canadian soldier is dead a day after a suspected Islamic radical hit him and another soldier with his car.

Police shot and killed the driver after he rammed into the two soldiers Monday in a parking lot in Quebec province.

Police officials say the other soldier was not as seriously hurt.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing. Police say they are looking into the theory the act was "deliberate."

Canadian officials say the 25-year-old suspect was known to federal authorities who "were concerned that he had become radicalized."

The suspect has been identified as Martin Couture Rouleau.

After hitting the two soldiers, he fled the scene in his car, but police chased him and shot him when he got out of the vehicle after losing control of it. He reportedly was in possession of a knife at the time.

After hearing about the incident Monday, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper called the reports "extremely troubling."
