Crowds gather ahead of funeral for Canadian soldier killed in Ottawa

HAMILTON Ontario (Reuters) – Crowds gathered Tuesday morning outside a cathedral in industrial Hamilton, Ontario, where Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and hundreds of mourners will attend the funeral of the soldier shot dead in last week’s attack on the nation’s seat of government.

Corporal Nathan Cirillo, 24, was one of two soldiers killed in a pair of attacks last week that police said were carried out independently by radical recent converts to Islam. The assaults took place as Canada’s military was stepping up its involvement in air strikes against Islamic State militants in Iraq.
