A man killed 20 people and wounded 26 others during a shooting spree at an El Paso shopping mall on Saturday. Later in the day, nine people were killed and 27 more injured during a separate attack in Dayton, Ohio.

Following the deadly shooting on Saturday US President Donald Trump has accused fake news of playing its part in creating the atmosphere of hatred in the country. He added that the media should be responsible for public safety.    

Earlier on Monday, Trump called for a “strong’ firearm purchase background checks to be introduced into a prospective immigration reform bill​.

The FBI said it was concerned that latest shootings could inspire US-based extremists to carry out more acts of violence similar to those in El Paso and Dayton.
