At least ten dead in the United States after an assault targeting people of color


In the United States, an assault by a young white man has resulted in at least ten deaths, most of them black people.

The 18-year-old killer is under arrest.

The attack took place on the afternoon of Saturday, May 14, 2022, in Buffalo, New York.

“We are investigating this incident both as a hate crime and as a case of racially motivated violent extremism,” said Stephen Belongia, FBI Special Agent.

The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a crowded African-American neighborhood. Eleven people were killed and three others were injured. The three injured are among the store’s employees.

The attack took place at a busy time in a neighborhood inhabited by people of color

The attacker is said to have driven the car for several hours before arriving in a predominantly African-American neighborhood. At the time of his capture, the killer was wearing a bulletproof vest, a “tactical helmet” (military type) and a video camera. With this, the killer broadcast his attack live on an internet platform. The transmission was interrupted by the platform provider two minutes after the start of the broadcast. The attacker’s account was subsequently deactivated.
