Canadian police say at least 11 people have been killed and 20 others injured in a Knife Attack in the central province of Saskatchewan.
The men were targeted at 13 locations in James Smith Creek Nation and the nearby village of Weldon.
Two suspects, identified as Damien Sanderson, 31, and Myles Sanderson, 30, are at large and are believed to be armed and dangerous.
Residents have been asked to take shelter in a safe place as a large scale. But search continues across the province for the attackers.
The Saskatchewan Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) tweeted, “Do not leave a safe place and use caution when sheltering someone in your home.”
Checkpoints have been set up where police are checking the identity of passengers. And motorists have been urged not to give lifts to hitchhikers.
A state of emergency has been declared in the James Smith Creation Nation. A local community of about 2000 people lives here. It is northeast of Weldon, home to about 200 people.
A dangerous person alert has been sent to all mobile phones in the provinces of Manitoba and Alberta. It is a large area about half the size of Europe.
On Twitter, the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, referred to the attack as “horrific” and “heartbreaking.”
He said in his statement that he was deeply saddened by these attacks. So that “those responsible for today’s heinous attacks should be brought to justice.”
In a news briefing on Sunday evening, police said the number of injured could rise. Because some people have reached the hospital on their own, urging such people to contact authorities.
