US President Joe Biden has called for a thorough investigation into the racially motivated shooting in Buffalo New York, in which 10 people were killed – saying there was no safe harbour for “hate filled domestic terrorism”.

Witnesses have been describing the terrifying moment when an 18-year-old white man, wearing military clothing, began shooting people inside a crowded supermarket in a predominantly Black neighbourhood.
