    Hundreds of people marched in solidarity with Canada’s Muslim community on Friday, days after a man ran over and killed four members of a Muslim family.

    The victims, 46-year-old Salman Afzaal, his 44-year-old wife Madiha Salman, their 15-year-old daughter Yumna Salman and her 74-year-old grandmother, Talat Afzaal, were on an evening walk in London, Ontario, on Monday when the driver of a pickup truck struck them at an intersection.

    The sole survivor was the couple’s nine-year-old son, Fayez, who was seriously wounded but was expected to recover.

    Police allege it was a planned and premeditated act that targeted Muslims.

    The 20-year-old suspect, named as Nathaniel Veltman, made a brief virtual appearance in court on Thursday to face four counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder.
