PM laments US killings

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart has extended sympathy to the President of the United States, Barack Obama, over the loss of innocent lives, occasioned by “an evil and brutal act of terror” in Orlando, Florida over the weekend.

The massacre happened on Latin night at the Pulse nightclub in the heart of Orlando, a city best known for its theme parks.

The gunman, identified as Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old security guard who was born in New York to Afghan parents, opened fire inside the crowded gay nightclub early Sunday, leaving at least 49 people dead in the worst mass shooting in modern US history.

In correspondence sent to the US President, Stuart said: “Barbados, like other peace-loving and free societies, repudiates such barbarity and the affront to human dignity.

“I am confident that the resilience of the American people will serve them in good stead as they seek to recover from this outrageous deed.”

Stuart said that at this time of sorrow and mourning, the Government and people of Barbados were praying for the bereaved and for the safety of the people of the US. (BGIS/)

    Sir, you need to lament on Barbados killings. The number of killings for such a small country is atrocious.

    @honest you would realize that no one isn’t even paying him any attention. It should be a way that he and his government could be charged with manslaughter for the killing of all these poor helpless people who are falling and dying in our streets all because of their poor management and careless attitude.
