(CGTN) Eleven people have been killed and six others injured following a gun attack on a synagogue in the US city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, officials said.


The suspect, officially identified as Robert Bowers, opened fire during a baby naming ceremony at the Tree of Life synagogue on Saturday morning.


He's been charged by federal prosecutors with 29 counts including using a firearm to commit murder.


No children were among the fatalities. Four police officers were among the wounded.


The 46-year-old assailant, from Pittsburgh, was in fair condition Saturday evening with multiple gunshot wounds. Due to his injuries, he's been hospitalized.

Federal investigators said they are treating the shooting as a hate crime.


Bowers' social media posts are reportedly rife with anti-Semitic contents.


He reportedly shouted "All Jews must die" as he stormed the synagogue with an assault rifle and at least three handguns.


Investigators believed the gunman was acting alone but his full motive was not immediately clear, said Bob Jones, the special agent in charge of the FBI's office in Pittsburgh at a press conference.


In the wake of the fatal shooting, US President Donald Trump denounced the "evil Anti-Semitic attack," saying it's "an assault on humanity." He said he will travel to Pittsburgh.

Hate in general is on the rise in the USA.
It's part of Trump's "Make America Hate Again" theme.
His supporters think this shooting was the Christian thing to do.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Trump must not be allowed to get away with his hatemongering; that's why the mid-term is very important; if as predicted, the Democrats seized the House, his wings would be clipped!  The current Republican occupants of the House are too meek to control Trump!

"Is antisemitism on the rise in US?"

No, it's an accepted standard in the US for many years now.
