En un devastador ataque el domingo por la madrugada, Omar Mateen abrió fuego en Pulse, un club gay en Orlando, en la Florida. Mateen dejó cuando menos 49 personas muertas y otras 53 heridas antes de que la policía abriera fuego y cobrará su vida.

En las horas posteriores a la masacre—el tiroteo masivo más grande en la historia de EEUU—Seddique Mir Mateen, padre de Mateen, describió a NBC News la presunta homofobia de su hijo y cómo esto pudo haber motivado el ataque.

“Estábamos en el centro de Miami, Bayside, algunas personas estaban tocando música. Él vio a dos hombres besándose frente a su esposa y sus hijos, y eso lo enfureció,” Seddique Mir Mateen dijo a NBC News. “Ellos se estaban besando y tocando y él dijo: ‘Mira eso. Enfrente de mi hijo están haciendo eso.’ Luego estábamos en el baño y algunos hombres se estaban besando.”

Las autoridades están investigando también una posible conexión entre Mateen y el Estado Islámico, quien ha asumido responsabilidad por el atentado.

Después de la violencia del domingo, las familias de las víctimas, la comunidad LGBT, aliados y defensores de todo el mundo se reunieron para lamentar a las víctimas en vigilias improvisadas. Estas son solo algunas de las imágenes más conmovedoras que se han dado a conocer hasta ahora.
