The two men accused of carrying out separate deadly attacks in Canada this week had recently converted to Islam and wanted to join the extremist fight, officials and local media said Thursday. Both men were killed during the violence, which officials called "terrorist attacks," the first such incidents tied to Islamic extremism ever to take place in Canada. On Monday, 25-year-old Martin Couture-Rouleau, from Quebec, used his car as a weapon when he mowed down two soldiers near Montreal, killing one of them, before being shot dead by police as he emerged from his wrecked vehicle holding a knife. Then on Wednesday, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, 32, shot and killed a soldier who was on ceremonial guard at a war memorial in downtown Ottawa before storming into the nearby parliament building, where he was shot dead.
