The names of the suspects in the Canadian mosque attack have been confirmed by a court clerk, according to the Associated Press.

Alexandre Bissonnette and Mohamed el Khadir are suspected of killing six people at the Quebec City Islamic Cultural Centre.

Others were wounded in the attack and some are said to be in a critical condition.

More than 50 people are said to have been inside the mosque when the gunmen opened fire during evening prayers.

Witnesses said they heard the gunmen shout "Allahu akbar" as they fired.
