Canadian authorities say they have found two more people who were injured when a van plowed into pedestrians in Toronto and have raised the total number of injured to 16.
The authorities also released the names of the 10 people killed in the attack. Eight of the 10 victims were women and all of them were Toronto residents, except for Andrea Bradden, 33, of Toronto suburb Woodbridge.
The other victims were Beutis Renuka Amarasingha, 45, Geraldine Brady, 83, So He Chung, 22, Anne Marie D'Amico, 30, Mary Elizabeth Forsyth, 94, Ji Hun Kim, 22, Dorothy Sewell, 80, Chul Min Kang, 45, and Munir Abdo Habib Najjar, 85.

Homicide Investigator Bryan Bott told reporters Friday that prosecutors plan to raise the number of attempted murder charges to 16.
