The gunman who murdered a soldier at the Canada’s national war memorial in Ottawa, then stormed parliament before he was shot dead, prepared a video recording of himself before the attack, police have said.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police commissioner Bob Paulson said the video was “persuasive evidence that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau’s attack was driven by ideological and political motives”.

Experts are conducting a detailed analysis of the video and Mr Paulson said it cannot be released yet .

Mr Paulson said a knife carried by Zehaf-Bibeau was taken from his aunt’s property in Mont Tremblant, Quebec, and police are looking into how he obtained the gun, which Mr Paulson said was old and uncommon, which police suspect he could have also hidden on the property.
