Canada - Somali sisters killed in double homicide

(Ottawa Citizen)- Two Somali-Canadian sisters were killed in a double homicide at a south-end housing co-op Friday night, according to friends and acquaintances.




Suad Mohamed said she is heartbroken after hearing her friends were killed at a home on McCarthy Road.

The friend identified them as Nasiba Noor, 29, and Asma Noor, 32, of Ottawa.

“Both of them were the nicest people you would ever meet,” Mohamed said Saturday by phone in Edmonton.

She has known the two women for about 10 years and says she has kept in touch after moving out west. She said Nasiba taught her the Qur’an and both sisters were well-known and involved in Ottawa’s Somali community.
