Ottawa shootings: Gunman 'not seen as a security threat'

More information has come to light about the gunman behind Thursday's attack on Canada's parliament building in Ottawa.

Police say Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, who was shot dead, was not among the 90 individuals known to Canadian security forces as a "high-risk traveller".

He had been planning to travel to Syria, and appears to have acted alone.

Samira Hussain reports.
