WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama has condemned deadly shootings in Canada as "outrageous attacks" and has offered to help the U.S. ally with its response.

The White House says Obama spoke by telephone Wednesday with Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

A Canadian soldier standing guard at a war memorial in the capital of Ottawa, Ontario, was shot and killed Wednesday. Gunfire also erupted inside Parliament and authorities say at least one gunman was killed.

On Monday, authorities say a recent convert to Islam killed one Canadian soldier before being shot to death by police.

Obama also expressed the American people's solidarity with Canada.
