OTTAWA - US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday that an attack on the Canadian parliament last week was clearly a terrorist act.

"Clearly, anybody who walks up in a premeditated way with a loaded rifle and attacks someone in uniform then purposely goes to a parliament, is committing, by commonsense standards, a terrorist act," Kerry told a news briefing after talks in Ottawa with his Canadian counterpart, Foreign Minister John Baird.Kerry came to Ottawa on his first visit to Canada since becoming secretary of state last year to show solidarity and discuss security issues after an attack on the Canadian parliament in the city on Wednesday in which a soldier was killed, and the killing of another soldier in Quebec on Oct. 20.
