"Monstrous tragedy": five years since the Orlando massacre
On June 12, 2016, there was a massacre in the city of Orlando (Florida, USA). 29-year-old American Omar Matin opened fire on visitors to the nightclub. The shooter killed 50 people, another 53 were injured. Matin was eliminated during a police special operation. There are several versions regarding the motives of the crime, but none of them is fully proven.
