FBI ‘용의자 테러조직서 영감얻어’+박대통령 위로전 보내
A host of new details are emerging about the gunman behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.
The FBI says the man who killed dozens of people at a gay nightclub in Orlando was almost certainly driven by a radical Islamic ideology,… but no links to a specific group have been unearthed yet.
Kim Mok-yeon tells us more.
FBI Director James Comey says the Orlando gunman Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old New York native and son of Afghan immigrants, had strong indications of radicalization and was inspired by foreign terrorist organizations.
Speaking at a news conference Monday, Comey said federal authorities were still trying to determine Mateen’s exact motives for shooting up the gay nightclub.
The FBI chief added that it’s still not clear which terrorist group Mateen supported as he pledged solidarity with conflicting organizations.
“So there were three total calls during the calls he said he was doing this for the leader of ISIL who we named and pledged loyalty to. But he also appeared to claim solidarity with the perpetrators of the Boston Marathon bombing and solidarity with a Florida man who died as a suicide bomber in Syria for al-Nusra Front a group in conflict with the so-called Islamic State.”
Comey said the police are trying to determine whether Mateen had recently scouted Disney World as a potential target, as reported by People.com, that cited an unidentified federal law enforcement source.
As the investigation goes on,… the international community is mourning the 49 innocent people killed in the massacre.
Messages of support have flowed in from around the world, with many saying the response should be one of love, not anger.
France’s Eiffel Tower was lit up in rainbow colors to express condolences to the victims, many of whom came from the LGBT community.
