MONTREAL - A kosher restaurant in Montreal has been the target of a firebombing for the second time in three nights.

Police say there were about 30 people in Chops Resto Bar shortly after midnight when a Molotov cocktail was thrown through the window.

No one was injured and the suspects ran away.

A nearby residence was targeted a night earlier and a kosher cafe was hit the night before that.

Investigators are looking into a possible connection between the firebombings.

Federal Immigration Minister Jason Kenney and Liberal MP Bob Rae took to Twitter to condemn the attacks.
