pulseToday the Government of Belize expressed distress and sorrow over the senseless killing and injuring of innocent citizens in Orlando, Florida on June 12th, 2016. The Government extended its condolences and prayers to the families and friends of those killed and injured in the tragic incident.


According to GOB the horrible mass shooting at the nightclub serves as a reminder to all of the ever-present threat of terrorism and indiscriminate violence. The Government stated today that they condemn these unjustifiable and savage attacks against innocent civilians and stands in solidarity with the United States of America during this very difficult period.


GOB also reiterated its commitment to cooperate with the international community to fight against this scourge to our common humanity.


A gunman who pledged allegiance to ISIS opened fire early Sunday morning in a packed Orlando nightclub, killing 50 people and wounding at least 53 more in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. The gunman, Omar Mateen, 29, of Fort Pierce, Florida, was interviewed by the FBI in 2013 and 2014 but was not found to be a threat, said the FBI. Mateen carried an assault rifle and a pistol into the packed Pulse club about 2 a.m. Sunday and started shooting. After a standoff of about three hours, while people trapped inside the club desperately called and messaged friends and relatives, police crashed into the building with an armored vehicle and stun grenades and killed Mateen.
