Share this article


US President Donald Trump has condemned the attack on a synagogue in Pittsburgh - and called for the man responsible to face the death penalty.

At least 11 people have died after a man opened fire at a baby naming ceremony yesterday.

Four police officers who responded are also among the injured.

A suspect has been arrested and charged with 29 offences - including hate crimes and weapons offences.

Robert Bowers (46) is believed to have shouted anti-semitic slurs as he barged into the synagogue before opening fire.

Addressing a rally in the US, President Trump had a strong warning for those behind the attack.

"Through the centuries the Jews have endured terrible persecution - and you know that.

"We've all read it, we've studied it, they've gone through a lot.

"And those seeking their destruction - we will seek their destruction".
