FLORISSANT, June 24 : Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton decried the Charleston church massacre as an act of "racist terrorism" on Tuesday, and called for the Confederate flag to be removed from the state capital grounds.
Speaking at a church in Florissant, Missouri, Clinton said Americans were struggling to come to grips with Wednesday's killing of nine African Americans at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church by a suspected white supremacist. 
"That night, word of the killings struck like a blow to the soul. How do we make sense of such an evil act -- an act of racist terrorism perpetrated in a house of God?"
She said the killings by 21-year-old suspect Dylann Roof was an indication of entrenched racism in the United States.    ?AFP
