A woman may be one of the two suspects involved in detonating a powerful homemade improvised explosive device at an Indian restaurant in Canada that injured 15 people, police said on Tuesday. The two suspects with their faces covered entered the Bombay Bhel restaurant late on Thursday night, dropped the improvised explosive device and fled. 

The restaurant is in Mississauga, about 28 km from Toronto. "The IED appears to be homemade. However, what led the two suspects to detonate this device is still not clear. We do not have a clear motive and no one has claimed responsibility," a police official said.

The Peel Regional Police said "at this point nothing suggests that it was a hate crime or an act of terrorism". The police official also gave a brief description of the two suspects and said that surveillance videos indicate that one of the two suspects might be a woman.
