FBI director refuses to use Orlando killer's name

FBI director James Comey has refused to use the name of the man who killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando.

He said he did not want to contribute to the "twisted notion" that "fame or glory" could come from carrying out attacks like these.

He added there were "strong indications" of radicalisation in the case and the shooter may have taken "potential inspiration" from terrorist groups abroad.
