ISIS extremists murders 49 in Orlando nightclub

An American muslim has gone on the rampage in a gay nightclub in Orlando, killing 49 and injuring 53.

Omar Mateen phoned police before he went on the rampage with an assault rifle and pledged allegiance to ISIS leader, Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi. Despite public claims by Barack Obama that there is no evidence of Mateen having links to any groups, ISIS have claimed responsibility for the attack and details have been released to the press of FBI investigations into him.

A video of Mateen's father is doing the rounds dressed in military fatigues declaring his candidacy for president of Afghanistan. He has posted a statement on Facebook saying that his son shouldn't have punished the gay community because "God himself will punish those involved in homosexuality".

Serious questions will no doubt be asked of the FBI who have had plenty of reason to have Mateen on their radar but concluded that he was no risk.
