This is the moment several men staged an impromptu prayer service for those who died in the fatal shootings at a church in South Carolina.
Several men stood in a circle in front of a hotel near to Emanuel AME Church, near to the centre of Charleston.
"We pray for the families, they've got a long road ahead of them," Reverend James Johnson, a local civil rights activist, said during the impromptu prayer service.
A white gunman killed nine people at a historic African-American church, with police describing the attack as a "hate crime".
The suspect, who police say is a 21-year-old white man wearing a sweatshirt, jeans and boots, was still at large hours after the shooting on Wednesday evening.Reuse content
