Jennifer Evans, Peel regional police chief, said on Friday that two suspects with their faces covered to hide their identity entered the Bombay Bhel restaurant in Missisauga, a major suburb west of Toronto late on Thursday.

The hoodie-clad men were seen carrying an "improvised explosive device" at the time and then fled the scene in an unidentified vehicle, Evans said.

The suspects, who were captured on security cameras, immediately fled the scene.

Police have released a photo of the two men walking into the restaurant.

Police asked for the public's help. Canadian police say an explosion set off deliberately in a restaurant has wounded a number of people.
