At least 15 people are wounded, three critically, in the bombing of a restaurant in the city of Mississauga, Canada.

Regional police say they are searching for two men seen wearing hoodies, walking into the Bombay Bhel restaurant in Canada’s sixth-largest city, throwing an improvised explosive device into the establishment, then fleeing on foot.

According to Reuters, the explosion occurred at 10:30 p.m. local time.

There is no immediate report regarding a possible motive for the crime.

In a Twitter post, the Peel Regional Police posted a still shot from security camera footage at the restaurant showing the two suspected bombers, both dressed in dark hoodies, with faces covered.
