He got very angry when he saw two men kissing

The BBC is live updating the news from Orlando.

These are the main points from the second press briefing by officials in Orlando:

  • 50 people killed, up from 20, making the Pulse nightclub attack the worst mass shooting in recent US history
  • New death toll came after investigators were able to gain better access to the building – they had to ensure it was clear of devices
  • 53 people were injured, many critically

Officials are saying the death toll will go up.

NBC news say they have spoken to the father of the suspected gunman by phone.

The man said: “We are saying we are apologising for the whole incident. We weren’t aware of any action he is taking. We are in shock like the whole country.

“This had nothing to do with religion.”

He added his son “got very angry when he saw two men kissing” months before in Miami.

Seek not to come between the dragon and his wroth.
