Fifty people were killed inside Pulse, a gay nightclub, Orlando Police Chief John Mina and other officials said Sunday morning, just hours after a shooter opened fire in the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.


At least 53 more people were injured, Mina said. Police have shot and killed the gunman, he told reporters.


"It's appears he was organized and well-prepared," the chief said, adding that the shooter had an assault-type weapon, a handgun and "some type of (other) device on him."


Officials warned that a lengthy investigation was ahead, given the number of victims and the scope of the violence. (CNN)

    My sympathies to the families but no sympathies to the US. When the LTTE was doing its business you only blamed the SL govt. So this blow-back for US middle-eastern policy. This is US crimes biting back.

    Ane modayo! It popular among the LGBT community. The term 'gay' is use rather loosely. If you want to get technical, it is popular among homosexual and transgender people.

    Yes. Isis and their whole second generation should be wiped out.

    There are gay women. They are called Lesbians.

    Premalal Monday, 13 June 2016 10:57 AM

    Don't gloat. This act is absolutely inhuman and unjustifiable under any circumstances. We in Sri-Lanka can not be complacent. .

    The word Gay is used to refer both gender but same sex partners!

    Man you are being foolish. Which religion says killing is good, be it of gay or any other?. Minds have been polluted by mindless religious teachers.

    There are only 2% Catholics in Israel. Your ignorance is showing. All know who you embrace and what you represent. Open you eyes and heart.

    CitizenPerera Monday, 13 June 2016 12:07 AM

    How is this a "terror attack"? This is a hate crime for a gay or lesbian club to be attacked.
