Egypt condoles with Canada over Saskatchewan stabbing

Egypt has offered condolences to Canada over a series of stabbings that have killed and wounded at least 25 people in the province of Saskatchewan.

Egypt extended its deepest condolences to the Canadian government and victims’ families and wished a speedy recovery for the injured, Spokesman for the ministry Ahmed Abo Zeid said on his Twitter account.

Canadian police have launched a huge manhunt for two men suspected of stabbing at least 10 people to death in a rampage that has shocked the nation.

Two suspects named as Damien Sanderson and Myles Sanderson are on the run and considered armed and dangerous.

Victims were found in 13 locations in the remote indigenous community James Smith Cree Nation and nearby Weldon.

It is one of the deadliest acts of mass violence Canada has seen. PM Justin Trudeau said it was “heartbreaking”.

At least 15 others were injured in the killing spree, with police urging residents to be extremely vigilant as they conduct a search across one of Canada’s largest and most remote regions.
