Leading Republican presidential aspirant Donald Trump has said the California shooting that
killed 14 people and injured 17 in the latest US shooting incident is an act of terrorism by Pakistan linked suspects Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik.

“It looks like another case. We’ve got a lot of bad things going on. Radical Islamic terrorism,” Trump told  reporters. “Take a look. I mean, you look at the names, you look at what’s happened. You tell me. “I think it was terrorism,” Trump said.

Over the last few weeks, Trump has been stating that certain sections of the society needs to be on the vigilance radar and has been advocating that activities at some mosques  be monitored.

Last week, he alleged that several thousand Muslims in  New York and New Jersey had celebrated after the twin-tower attack in New York in 2001. His remarks have been condemned by leaders across the political spectrum.

Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) which is investigating the case, has not determined yet if it was an
act of terror.

The Paksitani-couple– Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife  Tashfeen Malik –  in a shooting spree killed 14 people and injured 17 others at a holiday party where Farook worked.

Earlier, President Barack Obama did not rule this out as an act of terror, and asked people from rushing towards a judgement until investigations are complete.

“At this stage, we do not yet know why this terrible event occurred. We do know that the two individuals who were killed were equipped with weapons and appeared to have access to additional weaponry at their homes,” Obama told a group of White House pool reporters.

“But we don’t know why they did it. We don’t know at this point the extent of their plans. We do not know their motivations,” he said.

“It is possible that this was terrorist-related, but we  don’t know. It’s also possible that this was  workplace-related,” Obama said.
