Hundreds of mourners lined the streets of industrial Hamilton, Ontario, Tuesday to watch the military funeral procession of the soldier shot dead in last week's attack on the nation's seat of government.Corporal Nathan Cirillo, 24, was one of two soldiers killed in a pair of attacks last week that police said were carried out independently by radical recent converts to Islam. Cirillo was standing an unarmed, ceremonial watch at the nation's war memorial in Ottawa on Oct. 22 when he was shot dead by a man described as troubled and drug addicted.The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) said Cirillo's suspected killer, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, 32, made a video of himself saying the attack was motivated by his opposition to Canadian foreign policy.Following Cirillo's funeral, Harper is to meet with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who will travel to Ottawa to express his condolences over the attacks.Cirillo joined the Argylls in 2007, shortly after he graduated from high school.
