Highlight/Context

Middle Eastern man believed to be from Egypt took hostages at a bank in Canada this week. He was armed with a gun and had nine bombs strapped to a suicide vest. He wanted to speak to Trump. Police ended the hostage situation by shooting him.

Why was this not widely reported in the media?




Toronto Sun:

Demanding to talk to United States President Donald Trump, the 25-year-old man had nine bombs strapped to a suicide vest, a detonator in one hand and a gun in the other.

And he was threatening to use his entire arsenal inside an RBC branch — at the corner of Major MacKenzie Dr. and Dufferin St. in Vaughan — where he had up to 13 hostages Wednesday.

“He was waving his gun around,” said a person who was on the scene. “He was not demanding money. He asked for no money. He said he wanted crystal meth and he wanted to talk to Trump.”
