TORONTO — Authorities have released the identities of the 10 people killed in this week’s van attack in Toronto, saying they include eight women and two men.

Dr. Dirk Huyer, the chief coroner for Ontario, says the victims range in age from 22 to 94 years old.

He says they include two foreign nationals — a student from Korea and a man from Jordan who was visiting family in Toronto.

Huyer says his team worked methodically over the past few days to scientifically confirm the identities of the victims and thanked their loved ones for their patience.

Police say the man accused in the van attack will face three additional attempted murder charges.

Alek Minassian, 25, of Richmond Hill, Ont., already faces 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 counts of attempted murder in connection with the incident.

More to come.
