Jesse Jackson: Charleston gunman 'taught to hate'

The gunman who killed nine people at a African-American church in Charleston had been "taught to hate", civil rights activist Jesse Jackson has suggested.

Speaking to the BBC, Rev Jackson said the struggle for racial equality remained an "uphill battle" but one that "we are winning".

Six women and three men, including the pastor, died in the attack. A hate crimes investigation has been launched.
