 Man tries to stab soldier near Canadian Parliament: newspaper

OTTAWA (Reuters) - A man tried to stab a soldier taking part in a ceremony on Parliament Hill in the Canadian capital Ottawa on Monday but was arrested without doing any harm, the Ottawa Citizen newspaper said, citing a defence ministry spokesman.

The ministry did not immediately respond to a request for confirmation. The reported attack happened the day after a gunman shot dead two people in Toronto, Canada's largest city.
