Orlando Mass Murder Condemned

Iran denounced the terrorist mass shooting in the US city of Orlando, reiterating the need and necessity of an effective and efficient campaign against the scourge of terrorism.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran, in line with its principled policy in condemning terrorism and its strong determination to firmly and decisively counter this ominous phenomenon, condemns the recent terrorist attack in Orlando,” Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hossein Jaberi Ansari said on Monday, Press TV reported.
In the deadliest mass shooting in the United States and the nation’s worst terror attack since 9/11, an American-born man who had pledged allegiance to the so-called Islamic State terrorist group killed 50 people at the Pulse Club in Orlando, Florida, on Sunday. At least 53 others were injured in the shooting.
The gunman, Omar Mateen, 29, took hostages at the club and barricaded himself in the complex but was later killed by specially trained SWAT units.
IS later claimed responsibility for the attacks, according to media outlets affiliated with the terror group.
