Obama pledges to stand by Canada after attack


Shooting In Ottawa At City's War Memorial And Near Parliament Hill

U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday offered his condolences to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper over the “tragic” attack near parliament and pledged continued security coordination with Ottawa, Agence France-Presse reported.

“Obviously, the situation there is tragic,” Obama told reporters in the Oval Office after Wednesday’s attack.

“Just two days ago, a Canadian soldier had been killed in an attack. We now know that another young man was killed today, and I expressed, on behalf of the American people, our condolences to the family and to the Canadian people as a whole,” he said after speaking with Harper by telephone.
