Thirty people were injured in a pepper spray attack by an unidentified suspect on a group of refugees in Canada’s Vancouver, Sputnik reported.
The male suspect approached the group of refugees, who gathered near the Muslim Association of Canada Centre, on a bicycle and attacked them with the pepper spray, the CBC television reported.
