Montreal daycare attacked twice in one day

Daycare had been raided in international fraud probe

A daycare in a Montreal suburb has been firebombed twice in one day, and for a third time in two weeks, after being raided two years ago by police as part of an investigation into ID fraud. Police and firefighters arrived at the Bébé Einstein Daycare in Rivières-des-Prairies at 11 p.m. on Tuesday, having already investigated the scene earlier that morning, when remnants of a Molotov cocktail were found. The daycare was first attacked on Sept. 3, and was raided in 2009 during an international probe into ID fraud, after authorities said that counterfeit credit cards, drivers’ licenses and passports were being made on site. No one was reported injured in the attacks and damage was said to be minimal.
