OTTAWA/MONTREAL - A man who ran down two Canadian soldiers in his car at a Quebec mall on Monday and was later shot dead by police, "had become radicalized," the Canadian government said.

The Canadian government did not specify what it meant by radicalized but in the past has used the term to refer to Canadians who become supporters of militant Islamic groups.

Quebec police shot and killed the 25-year-old driver after a police chase following the incident. One of the two soldiers he ran over had life-threatening injuries. Police did not say whether the soldiers were in uniform.
