Charleston church reopens

The African-American church in which nine parishioners were shot dead in South Carolina reopens for services on Sunday. Members of Emanuel AME church met again on Saturday in the room where their friends died on Wednesday.

Many more people are expected to attend the service .Meanwhile, police are investigating an online post, possibly by the gunman, that appears to outline his motivation for the attack. One of those who attended Saturday’s meeting, Harold Washington, said the church’s doors would be open to all on Sunday.

“We’re gonna have people come by that we’ve never seen before and will probably never see again, and that’s OK,” he said. “It’s a church of the Lord – you don’t turn nobody down.”Survivors say Dylann Roof spent close to an hour attending a church service on Wednesday before opening fire.
