An explosion police say was caused by an improvised explosive device injured 15 people inside a Mississauga restaurant Thursday night. Fire crews and paramedics arrived at Bombay Bhel, an Indian restaurant at 5035 Hurontario St. near Eglinton Ave., around 10:30 p.m. “There were two individuals seen entering and detonating the device and two individuals that were seen fleeing the restaurant,” Const.
