WASHINGTON — People around the world are following the chaotic scenes in Ottawa.
The shooting around Parliament has become the top news story in numerous countries.
All the main American news networks are offering live coverage; it’s also the lead item on the best-known newspapers in many countries including the U.S., the UK, Mexico, France and Italy.
Even in Turkey — which borders an active war zone where an international coalition is fighting Islamist rebels — the Canadian events are now a top news item.
In CNN’s coverage, a recurring question that a host has kept asking guests is: How did a gunman manage to walk into Canada’s Parliament?
One U.S. law-enforcement analyst says this incident will prompt the same kind of scrutiny that occurred when a knife-wielding man recently jumped the fence to enter the White House.
