Police in Canada have released video showing how a lone gunman stormed into Canada's parliament on Wednesday.

Minutes before, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, 32, had shot dead a soldier at Ottawa's war memorial near parliament.

Zehaf-Bibeau was ultimately shot dead by Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers.

He was not on a list of known high-risk travellers, but had links to extremist elements, police said. He had recently applied for a passport and intended to travel to Syria.

Mr Paulson said Zehaf-Bibeau was not among the 90 individuals known to Canadian security forces as a "high-risk traveller", contrary to earlier reports.

Nor was he linked to the Muslim convert who on Monday killed a Canadian soldier in Quebec in a hit-and-run attack.
