Canada’s minister of public safety says it’s too soon to say whether the crash of a van into pedestrians in Toronto is a case of international terrorism.

Ralph Goodale tells reporters that police are still investigating to determine what happened and why in Monday’s incident in northern Toronto in which a van struck a crowd of pedestrians.

Toronto police say 9 dead, 16 injured after van struck pedestrians in Toronto; driver in custody.

Goodale says Canada has not changed its terrorism alert level and he has no information that would suggest a need to do so.
