The shooting that killed 20 people in the border city of El Paso in Texas will be handled as a case of “domestic terrorism”, US authorities have said.
The announcement came on Sunday as Mexico declared it will take legal actions to protect its citizens in the United States. Six Mexicans were among those killed in Saturday’s gun assault at a Walmart store, according to officials. Meanwhile, at Cielo Vista Church, not far from the scene of the massacre, people gathered to worship, support each other, and seek answers.
People in El Paso are also mourning the victims of Saturday’s mass shooting.
