MURDER TRIAL ADJOURNED FOR TWO WEEKS
A young man facing terrorism charges for allegedly targeting a Muslim family and killing them with his truck in southwestern Ontario has had his case adjourned for two weeks. Nathaniel Veltman, 20, of London, Ont., faces four counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder in what the prosecution says was an act of terrorism. Police allege the June 6 attack was motivated by hate against the Islamic faith. Salman Afzaal, 46, his 44-year-old wife Madiha Salman, their 15-year-old daughter Yumna and her 74-year-old grandmother, Talat Afzaal, were killed while out for an evening walk. The couple’s nine-yearold son, Fayez, was seriously hurt. Prosecutors say more disclosure will be on its way to the defence soon. The case returns to court on Oct. 20.
