'No clear evidence' of IS link

Orlando shootings: 'No clear evidence' of IS link

There is no clear evidence that the Orlando gunman was directed by the so-called Islamic State group (IS), US President Barack Obama has said.
But the inquiry into the attack on the Pulse gay night club, in which 49 people were killed, is being treated as a terrorist investigation, he added.
The FBI's director said the gunman was radicalised through the internet.
Meanwhile Donald Trump said he would suspend immigration from certain areas of the world to the US.
The presumptive Republican presidential candidate also renewed his call for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the country.
The US authorities say gunman Omar Mateen pledged allegiance to IS shortly before the attack in Florida. 
However, the extent of any links to IS remains unclear.
