  • "Forty eight of the forty nine victims have been identified..."

  • America has begun to attach names, faces, and life stories to the 49 victims

  • who died in a massacre at Orlando nightclub over the weekend.

  • Most of them were young gay Latinos and details about their characters and aspirations

  • have added new emotion to the vigils happening across a shellshocked country.

  • Outside the historic Stonewall inn in New York, famed as the birthplace of the modern gay rights movement,

  • crowds gathered to pay tribute to the victims

  • and call for action against violence.

  • At the same time, the public was absorbing harrowing new detaills,

  • about how people died.

  • The FBI said the attacker, Omar Mateen,

  • shot nearly all of them in the first stages of his assault.

  • And remained cool and calm during a 3 hour standoff in which he

  • held hostages in the bathroom and talked by phone to law enforcement officials,

  • claiming allegence to ISIS and praising the Boston marathon bombers.

  • In Fort Pierece, the ocean side town where Mateen lived with his wife and son,

  • neighbors were allowed back to the apartment complex,

  • from which they'd been evacuated, as Mateen's home was searched.

  • The city's small Muslim population meanwhile, is facing uncomfortable questions.

  • "This is the mosque where Omar Mateen worshipped, and he came three or four times a week,

  • according to a board member called Adel Nefzi, who I just spoke to.

  • Mateen wasn't the most frequent visitor, and he didn't hang around after prayer like some others to catch up with friends.

  • Nefzi said he didn't have any special insights into Mateen's personality,

  • but he was adamant about a few things.

  • He said this mosque does not preach hatred; it does not have any ties to any foreign Islamic groups.

  • And he said that if Mateen was radicalized

  • it certainly didn't happen here."

  • In his latest statement about the attacks, Barack Obama described Mateen as a homegrown extremist,

  • saying he'd been inspired by radical material he'd found online.

  • The President urged Americans to respond by supporting tighter gun laws.

  • "It appears that the shooter was inspired by various extremist information, that was disseminated over the Internet."

  • Hilary Clinton agreed with him, as terroism surged to the forefront of the presidential election.

  • But Donald Trump attacked her and Mr. Obama, as being soft on terror.

  • "We cannot continue to allow, thousands upon thousands of people to pour into our country,

  • many of whom have the same thought process as this savage killer.

  • Many of the principles of radical Islam are incompatible with Western values and institutions."

  • Precisely what the attack was, is becoming clearer by the day.

  • But there're still, a lot more to learn.
