Canadian authorities confirmed that two men entered an Indian restaurant on Thursday in the Canadian city of Mississauga and set off a bomb then fled the scene, leaving more than a dozen people wounded.

The blast went off at around 10:30 p.m. in the Bombay Bhel restaurant. The Peel Regional Paramedic Service posted in a tweet that fifteen people were brought to the hospital, with three of them sustaining critical injuries.

The two male suspects entered the restaurant and detonated their improvised explosive device then fled the scene of the crime.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, and it is not clear at this point if Canadian authorities will be viewing the incident as a terror attack.

Police posted a photo on Twitter showing two people with dark zip-up hoodies walking into the establishment with one of them appearing to be holding an object.

The authorities have yet to identify the suspects, but they have already provided descriptions of the suspects and are asking the public’s help in identifying and tracking them down.

Mississauga is Canada’s sixth largest city, and the restaurant blast comes just a month after a driver plowed his white Ryder rental van into a lunch-hour crowd in Toronto, killing ten people while injuring 15 others.

Mississauga is in Lake Ontario located 20 miles west of Toronto.

The public is requested to call these numbers for any crucial information about the two male suspects. (905) 453-2121 or 12CIB at ext.1233.
