As many as 15 people have been injured – at least three of them critically.

The men were captured on CCTV walking into the restaurant with dark zip-up hoodies pulled over their heads.

One of the men appeared to be carrying an object, thought to be the explosive device.

So far no one has claimed responsibility for the attack, the motive of which also remains unclear.

Mississauga is Canada’s sixth largest city with a population of 700,000 people and is situated approximately 32 kilometres west of Toronto.

Thursday night’s attack comes a month after a man drove a rental van into a crowd in Toronto, killing 10 people and injuring 15.
