Donald Trump To Visit Pittsburgh After Synagogue Shooting Despite City Leaders' Opposition

United States prosecutors slapped the gunman who killed 11 people in a synagogue with 29 counts of federal crimes of violence and firearms offenses on Saturday, after he carried out the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in recent USA history.

Authorities said Bowers expressed hatred of Jews during the deadly rampage and later told a police officer that "they're committing genocide to my people".

The attack, the deadliest on Jews in USA history, targeted a congregation that is an anchor of Pittsburgh's large and close-knit Jewish community, a synagogue about a 25-minute drive from Bowers' home.

Just an hour before the shooting, that account posted: "HIAS [Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society] likes to bring invaders in that kill our people". He will appear before a judge on Monday afternoon, U.S. Attorney Scott Brady said at a news conference.

When the shooter entered the Tree of Life synagogue on Saturday, the rabbi there would have been reading the same scripture that Moskovitz read to his Vancouver congregation, he said.

Six people were injured, including four officers.

Bowers was also charged under state law with criminal homicide, aggravated assault and ethnic intimidation.

Bowers's racism wasn't only directed at Jews, the Washington Post reports. Bowers was released at 9:45 a.m. on Monday morning, a spokeswoman for Allegheny Health Network said.

46-year-old Robert Bowers walked into the synagogue and shouted "All Jews must die" before opening fire.

Instead, he suggested multiple times that the synagogue should have had "somebody to protect people" there. A day later, Werber called the gunman "a maniac" and "a person who has no control of his baser instincts".

UK Royal Mint puts gold-backed crypto token launch plans on hold
The UK government has blocked a Royal Mint plan to create a "digital gold" token that would trade on a cryptocurrency exchange. As CoinSpeaker has already reported , this blockchain-based coin is known as Royal Mint Gold (RMG) and it is backed by gold.

Rabbi Jonathan Perlman closed the door and pushed them into a large supply closet, he said.

"The approach we need to be looking at is how we take the guns - the common denominator of every mass shooting in America - out of the hands of those looking to express hatred through murder", he said.

"We are devastated", said the group's head, Jonathan Greenblatt.

The press secretary's voice cracked with emotion as she spoke of how the president "adores" Jewish Americans.

A visitor at the temporary memorial outside the Tree of Life Synagogue where 11 were killed over the weekend kneels to read the messages by the Star of David markers with the victims names on them in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh on Monday.

An investigation by Politico has found that President Donald Trump's "executive time" - which is used by the White House as a euphemism for the time he spends watching cable news - absolutely dwarfs the time allotted to doing official work.

The president has said he will visit Pittsburgh, and denounced the attack as "evil" and said anti-Semitism was a "poison", but did not cancel a rally held in IL the same evening as the shooting.

Sanders said Trump "cherishes the American Jewish community for everything it stands for and contributes to our country". We pray for those who perished and their loved ones, and our hearts go out to the courageous police officers who sustained serious injuries. She called anti-Semitism a "plague to humanity".

"We'll get through this darkest day of Pittsburgh history by working together", the city's mayor, Bill Peduto, told reporters on Sunday.
