TORONTO (AP) - The Latest on the incident in which a van plowed down a Toronto sidewalk, killing and injuring several people (all times local):

8:55 a.m.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says authorities see no national security element in the seeming attack on pedestrians in Canada’s largest city.

Trudeau says the incident “hasn’t changed the overall threat level in Canada,” though it occurred as Cabinet ministers from the G7 nations are meeting in Toronto.

Trudeau says Canada will do whatever it can to keep its citizens safe, while staying true to its values.



Speaking at a news conference Tuesday, he said, “We cannot as Canadians choose to live in fear every single day as we go about our daily business.”

Police are trying to determine why a driver plowed a rented van along a crowded sidewalk in Toronto, killing 10 people and injuring 15 in what many said seemed a deliberate attack.
