NewsAlert: Quebec mosque opens doors after weekend shooting

QUEBEC — Worshippers are returning to the scene of last weekend's mosque shooting to view the aftermath of the carnage.

Reporters and members of the city's Muslim community stepped over gobs of blood today as they made their way through the mosque.

Some of the walls were pierced by bullets and smears of blood remained on many of the centre's surfaces, including down the stairs to the basement.

Mosque vice-president Mohamed Labidi says he wanted to open the centre to the public so people can see what worshippers had to suffer.

More coming.
