WASHINGTONORLANDO, June 14 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday challenged the Republican-controlled Congress to reinstate the ban on assault weapons in the wake of the deadliest shooting massacre in the U.S. history.

At least 49 people were killed and 53 others wounded, including a police officer, early Sunday in a shooting spree at a popular LGBT nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

The gunman, identified by authorities as Omar Mateen of Port St. Lucie, Florida, used an AR-15 assault rifle and a handgun to carry out the attack. Both guns were purchased legally.

"Reinstate the assault weapons ban, (and) make it harder for terrorists to use these weapons to kill us," said Obama at a press conference, warning that without such a ban, "these kinds of events are going to keep on happening."

The manufacture for civilian use of certain semi-automatic firearms was banned in 1994. However, when the ban expired in 2004, the U.S. Congress refused to renew the ban.

"We have to work hard as a nation, to reconsider our gun laws that allow such massacres to take place," Iman Muhammad Musri, an Islam leader told a rally to commemorate the victims in the mass shooting in Orlando Monday.

As the attack occurred in the leadup to the 2016 race for the White House, two competing narratives are already emerging, with the left touting what they say is a need for more gun control and the right calling for more action against "Islamic radicalism."

In a speech from her campaign trail on Monday, Democratic presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton talked about the need to tackle terrorism, but emphasized what she billed as a need for more gun control.

While noting that the shooter had pledged allegiance to IS, she added that his motives remain unknown.

"There's a lot we still don't know, including what other mix of motives drove him to kill," she said.

Later on Monday, Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump spoke from his campaign trail in the state of New Hampshire, saying he would "suspend immigration" from parts of the world where there is a proven link between that country and terrorism.

Expressing disdain for what he called the "current politically correct response," he said political correctness inhibits the United States from responding fast and clearly.

In response to those who believe that stricter firearms laws will keep Americans safer, the bombastic billionaire noted that while France has very strict gun control laws, scores were killed in the deadly terror in Paris last year.

Trump added that more gun control would be tantamount to disarming law-abiding Americans and leaving them more vulnerable to terrorist attacks.

As the mass shooting triggered heated political debates, people in Orlando in the southeastern U.S. state of Florida showed their solidarity with a vigil on Monday.

Thousands of people gathered in downtown Orlando to remember the 49 people who were killed and to pray for the 53 others wounded.

People held praying signs and candles. Some of them laid flowers and wrote encouraging words on the pavement with crayon.

"Be Strong Orlando," "One City Love" and "We are with you," said the signs.

"Tonight we remain a city of pain, we are mourning and we are angry," said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer in a speech during the vigil on Monday. "We will get through this because in our city's darkest hour, our residents have shown that they are the light."

BEIJING Granit Xhaka Schweiz Trikot , Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- Disciplinary authorities have investigated 440 officials at or above provincial or corps level for corruption over the past five years as the Communist Party of China (CPC) pledges sweeping victory over the threat to the Party, an official said Thursday.

Among them, 43 members and alternate members of the CPC Central Committee, as well as nine members of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), were investigated Haris Seferovic Schweiz Trikot , said Yang Xiaodu, deputy secretary of the CCDI, at a press conference on the sidelines of the 19th CPC National Congress.

Five years ago, the CPC leadership launched a high-profile anti-corruption campaign, which has led to the downfall of a number of high-level officials Remo Freuler Schweiz Trikot , known as "tigers," and lower-level "flies" who serve at the grassroots level.

Among the "tigers" felled in the campaign were Zhou Yongkang, Bo Xilai, Guo Boxiong, Xu Caihou Breel Embolo Schweiz Trikot , Sun Zhengcai and Ling Jihua.

Yang said more than 8,900 city level officials and over 63,000 county level officials were punished during that period.

A total of 278,000 grassroots Party members and officials were also punished, he said.

China is working with the international community to hunt corruption suspects who had fled overseas Michael Lang Schweiz Trikot , leading to the capture of 3,453 fugitives, Yang said.

Among the top 100 fugitives listed on an Interpol red notice, 48 have been arrested, he said.

WASHINGTON Manuel Akanji Schweiz Trikot , Oct. 17 (Xinhua) -- A strong link has been for the first time established between high blood pressure and the most common heart valve disorder known as mitral regurgitation, a new study said Tuesday.

The findings, published in the U.S. journal PLOS Medicine, showed that the valve disorder, which is increasingly diagnosed worldwide Nico Elvedi Schweiz Trikot , particularly among older people, is not an inevitable consequence of aging, as previously assumed, but may be preventable.

"Given the large and growing burden of mitral valve disease, particularly among older people Leo Lacroix Schweiz Trikot , we believe these findings are likely to have significant implications for medical policy and practice around the world," lead author Kazem Rahimi, professor and deputy director of the University of Oxford's George Institute for Global Health, said in a statement.

Mitral regurgitation can lead to a backflow of blood into the heart, causing symptoms such as shortness of br.
