As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by CBC.CA:

One witness says he heard a huge explosion, before coming upon a chaotic scene of broken glass and bloodied diners at a Mississauga Indian restaurant late Thursday, while another spotted two men running away from the scene.

Peel Regional Police allege two disguised men entered the Bombay Bhel restaurant, near a major Mississauga, Ont. intersection, planted an improvised explosive device and then fled. Moments later, at around 10:30 p.m. the device detonated, injuring at least 15 people.

The article goes on to state the following:

Nobody was killed, but when international student Rafael Concaceicao raced to the scene from a nearby patio, he saw a number of people who were bleeding and one man who appeared to have glass lodged in his eye, he said.

“Glass was broken in the street … everything was destroyed. Lots of blood in the floor,” Concaceicao told CBC Toronto. “Many people were screaming. They were trying to run out from the restaurant.”

Paramedics wheeled a number of people away on stretchers. Others limped away. Amid the flashing lights, one woman comforted an infant in the back seat of a police cruiser.
