The Quebec City Mosque opens its doors for the first time after attack

03 February, 02:34 PM

The Quebec City Mosque opened its doors for the first since the shooting that left six people dead on Sunday.

Reporters and members of the city's Muslim community stepped over bloody floors and bullet holes on Wednesday as they made their way through the mosque after the carnage. Blood smeared on the floor and walls and bullet holes could still be seen in the Islamic center aftermath.

The Mosque vice president Mohamed Labidi and worshippers said they wanted to show the world the scenes of the crime.

"The message is that we will still pray, even with blood on the floor," he said.

The alleged gunman Alexandre Bissonette, 27, has been charged with six counts of murder and five of attempted murder.

Funerals for three of the dead mosque worshippers will be held in Montreal on Thursday.
