OTTAWA - Canada decided to push back its deadline for accepting 25,000 Syrian refugees in part because of public security concerns after the Paris attacks, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Wednesday.

The federal government on Tuesday announced it was aiming to welcome the refugees by the end of February rather than Jan. 1 and said all necessary security checks would be carried out in the region rather than in Canada.

Critics said the initial plan was too ambitious and would lead to rushed security procedures, especially in the wake of the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris that killed 130 people. Islamic State claimed responsibility.
