>> Just a week after the deadliest mass shooting in US history, the FBI on Monday will be releasing transcripts of calls placed to 911 dispatchers by the Orlando gunman during his rampage. The shooter, Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people before dying in a gun fight with police is said to have repeatedly paused during his three hour siege to call 911 and post messages on line from inside the Pulse nightclub, professing his support for Islamist militant groups.
