Man blows self up at Toronto Tim Hortons
Canadian Press

Toronto

A man died Sunday after an explosion in the washroom of a Tim Hortons doughnut shop in downtown Toronto, police said.

They did not immediately confirm reports, by radio station AM-640, that a man had entered the washroom shortly before the blast with explosives strapped to his body.

Police said no one else was involved and there were no other injuries. They couldn't say whether the dead man was a customer or an employee.

The blast happened at the shop east of Yonge Street and north of Bloor, one of the busiest intersections in the city, at around 1 p.m. local time. Traffic was tied up in the area and Yonge Street was closed in both directions.

Fire department spokesman Daryl Fuglerud said the man had burns to his body.

More likely, he was striking a blow against the Zionist occupation of the stalls.

It was a donut shop...he obviously was trying to kill a bunch of cops.

Very important question: Were the Boston Creme Donuts harmed in anyway?

Hopefully they'll find out what he was really after, and whether he was alone, or part of a bigger group.

I'm glad no innocents were hurt. Was this person a lone bomber or are there others. It will be just a matter of time before this happens here in the USofA.

Do we even know what his motive was?
Awfully quick to be declaring that, chicken little.
Maybe he wanted to be like this guy

I had not heard that this was a homicide bomber, any facts?
If this is true how long before it is here?
