The deadliest attack in Jerusalem in years and the state of emergency in Ferguson, Mo, led many Canadian world headlines Tuesday.

In the early hours of Tuesday, news broke of a deadly attack in Jerusalem. The CBC and Global News both prominently featured what according to Associated Press is being called the ‘‘deadliest attack in years’’ prominently.

The CBC kicked off the world section of its website with an Associated Press story about the attack. The story ran under the headline ‘‘Israel to ‘respond harshly’ to deadly synagogue attack: Benjamin Netanyahu.’’ The AP report outlined how many people had died and used quotes from several government officials such as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry.


Global News ran the same AP story but under the headline ‘‘4 killed after 2 Palestinians storm Jerusalem synagogue.’’ The story ran with an AFP/Getty Images photo from outside the synagogue where the attack occurred.

The Toronto Star ran a piece on page A2 on the decision by Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon to impose a state of emergency in advance of a grand jury’s decision on whether to lay criminal charges against the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown in August. The story was reported by Mitch Potter from the Star’s Washington bureau and ran under the headline ‘‘Security forces mobilize in Ferguson.’’

CTV News relied on an AP story for its coverage of the Ferguson unrest. The piece topped the news outlet’s online world section with the headline ‘‘National Guard prepares for more Ferguson unrest’’ and featured a photo of a memorial honouring Brown.

The Globe and Mail led-off its online world section with a report ahead of tonight’s vote in the American senate regarding approval of the Keystone XL pipeline. The Washington placelined story was reported by Paul Koring and ran under the headline ‘‘One more Senate vote needed to force Keystone XL showdown with Obama.’’

The National Post ran an AP piece online about convicted mass murderer Charles Manson receiving the green light to marry. The story ran under the headline ‘‘Mass murderer Charles Manson gets marriage license to wed 26-year-old woman’’ and featured a headshot of the 80-year-old serial killer.
