Temple shooting: Obama orders US flag at half mast

Calls for a “soul searching” to find ways to reduce violence in America.


August 08, 2012

WASHINGTON: As federal investigators searched for a motive for Sunday’s attack on a Sikh Gurdwara in Wisconsin, President Barack Obama ordered the US flag to be flown at half mast until Aug 10 in honour of the victims. He also called for a “soul searching” to find ways to reduce violence in America as these kinds of terrible, tragic events were happening with too much regularity. “All of us are heartbroken by what’s happened,” Obama told reporters.
