The objective of the Ottawa attacks was to instill fear and panic in the country, the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has told the parliament.

The chief of the Metropolitan Police, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, has responded to the expected release of police killer Harry Roberts:
Canada's Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his wife Laureen lay a wreath at the National War Memorial in Ottawa to commemorate the shooting of Canadian army reservist Corporal Nathan Cirillo at the site yesterday.
The daughter of a murdered police officer has said she is "sickened" to learn that her father's killer is to be released without any prior warning.

Corporal Nathan Cirillo was killed and two other people were wounded in the attack.
