Biden: Buffalo mass shooting 'domestic terrorism'

United States President Joe Biden described on Tuesday the events in the city of Buffalo as an act of "domestic terrorism."

"What happened here is simple and straightforward: terrorism, domestic terrorism. Violence inflicted in the service of hate and a vicious thirst for power," said Biden, asserting that the Internet and the media influence radicalizing the individuals who commit these terrorist acts.

Last Saturday, an 18-year-old gunman allegedly perpetrated a racist attack at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, killing ten people and wounding three others. Authorities have said they are investigating the shooting as a racial hate crime and are also considering a terrorism charge.
