Eight people, many of them women of Asian descent, have been killed in shootings at spas in the US state of Georgia.
Police say the shootings took place at a massage parlour in Acworth, a suburb north of Atlanta, and two spas in the city itself.
South Korea later confirmed that four of the victims were of Korean descent.
Officials say a 21-year-old man was arrested and is suspected of involvement in all of the attacks.
No motive has yet been established, but there are fears the crimes may have deliberately targeted people of Asian descent.
Hate crimes against Asian-Americans spiked in recent months, fuelled by rhetoric that blames them for the spread of Covid-19.
In an address last week, President Joe Biden condemned “vicious hate crimes against Asian-Americans who have been attacked, harassed, blamed and scapegoated.”
What do we know about the shootings?
The first happened at about 17:00 (21:00 GMT) on Tuesday at Young’s Asian Massage in Acworth, Cherokee County.
Two people died at the scene and three were taken to hospital, where two more died, sheriff’s office spokesman Capt Jay Baker said. He later confirmed the victims were two Asian women, a white woman and a white man, and said a Hispanic man had been wounded.
Less than an hour later, police were called to a “robbery in progress” at Gold Spa in north-east Atlanta.
“Upon arrival, officers located three females deceased inside the location from apparent gunshot wounds,” police said.
While there, officers were called to a spa across the street, called Aromatherapy Spa, where they found another woman shot dead.
