WASHINGTON — US President Joe Biden calls on citizens to end the hate that is “a stain on the soul of America,” as he mourns 10 people killed at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket in a racially motivated shooting.

“We must all work together to address the hate that remains a stain on the soul of America,” the president says, at a service for fallen US police officers.

The Justice Department, Biden adds, has announced that it is investigating the rampage “as a hate crime, racially motivated act of white supremacy and violent extremism.”
