Synagogue suspect faces additional federal charges
The suspect in a mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh that killed 11 worshippers was charged on a total of 44 counts, up from 29 counts previously, according to a federal indictment filed last Wednesday.
The charges against Robert Bowers, the suspect in what is believed to be the deadliest attack on Jews in recent US history, include religious hate crimes, firearms charges and causing injury to police officers.
As funerals were held, Donald Trump encountered hundreds of protesters when he paid his respects in the city. Chanting protesters greeted the president with signs such as “It’s your fault” and “Words matter”.
