The atmosphere in the city is depressing: the place where the tragedy took place looks like a war zone, helicopters are circling in the sky and reporters have gathered in front of the hospital where the injured had been taken after the shooting.
"There are memorial services or spontaneous prayers in the street held throughout the city. Tears are flowing. Many tears. It seems as if people in Orlando most often ask two questions: How could this happen? And what happened to 29-year-old Omar Mateen, who will go down in history as a murderer?" the magazine wrote.
On Sunday, 29-year-old Omar Mateen opened fire in a crowded gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killing 49 people and injuring 53 others. The shooting was classified by the US police as an act of terrorism and caused a wave of shock across the United States.
"June 12 will remain in the memory [of US residents] as the worst nightmare. From Orlando to Florida — for the entire country. 50 people have been killed. They just wanted to dance but were coolly shot by a young man," the article said.
The key questions remain yet to be answered: Did he perform a mission for Daesh? Was he inspired by Daesh? Did the FBI make a fatal mistake? Have the agents lost track of Daesh terrorists?
