The Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations has called for a public inquiry into the death of a Muslim man shot dead by Montreal police on Dec. 1. Police said Mohamed-Anas Bennis, 25, stabbed one of their officers in the Cote des Neiges district before the constable fatally shot the assailant. But Bennis’s family has so far refused to believe this account, saying the man would never have attacked a police officer. Because the Surete du Quebec and Montreal police were involved, the investigation of the shooting is being conducted by Quebec City police.
