Obama Brands Orlando Attack An Act Of ‘Terror’ And ‘Hate’

US President Barack Obama on Sunday expressed heartbreak at the “horrific massacre” of 50 late-night revelers in Orlando, branding it an act of terror and hate. “Although it’s still early in the investigation, we know enough to say that this was an act of terror and an act of hate,” Obama said, later ordering flags at half-staff as an act of mourning.

Meanwhile, in a press conference, an FBI spokesman says the agency first interviewed Omar Mateen in 2013 after he made “inflammatory remarks” to a colleague. The investigation was closed.

He added that the FBI had interviewed Mateen again in 2014 about a potential connection with suicide bomber Moner Abu Salha.

The FBI investigation found no “substantial relationship” between Mateen and Salah.
