Trump condemns killing of pair who tried to stop racist rant

"[Christian] said, 'Get off the bus, and get out of the country because you don't pay taxes here, ' [he said he] doesn't like Muslims, they're criminals", Evelin Hernandez, a witness riding in the train auto, told KATU.

Two teenage girls, one of them a Muslim wearing a Hijab, and the other, an African-American were rescued in a rather gory incident which saw their saviours' throats slit open by a United state citizen who howled hate speeches at the girls.

"He told us to go back to Saudi Arabia and he told us we shouldn't be here, to get out of his country", Mangum told KPTV.

The two men were killed after intervening.

The girls were scared and moved to the back of the train while a stranger jumped in to help.

Poile says rapid diagnosis and treatment are critical to prevent complications and Johansen's symptoms began soon after Game 4. The 2007 Stanley Cup champion is the second-leading scorer in the current playoffs, trailing only Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin.

Muslims in Portland, Oregon, thanked the community for its support and said they were raising money for the families of two men who were killed when they came to the defense of two young women - one wearing a hijab - who were targeted by an anti-Muslim rant. "We're very appreciative of what's being done for us".

"They fearlessly risked their lives for two young women who were threatened by an act of bigotry and terror".

The two men died from the cut.

Police identified the suspect as Jeremy Joseph Christian, who has already been booked on two counts of aggravated murder, two counts of second-degree intimidation, and being a felon in possession of a restricted weapon.

A number of social media posts from accounts controlled by Christian have pointed to him having hard-right white supremacist views, something local media reported that people in the area confirmed.

Christian is now being held without bail on various charges included aggravated murder, according to police. Another man who stepped in was seriously injured.

Ginobili had 15 points and when Popovich subbed him out with two minutes to go the San Antonio crowd gave him a standing ovation. But Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said to credit talent as the sole reason behind Golden States current run is disrespectful.

"I am calling on every elected leader in OR, every legal agency, every level of law enforcement to stand with me in preventing another tragedy", he said.

The grand jury should convene by next Tuesday, he said, and Christian will be presented with any indictments at his next court appearance.

The mayor of Portland, Oregon, is calling on the federal government and organizers to cancel a "Trump Free Speech Rally" and other events next weekend after the fatal stabbing of two people who confronted a man hurling racial slurs at two young women on a train.

The city's mayor says he hopes the slayings that shocked this liberal community will inspire "changes in the political dialogue in this country". 21-year-old Micah David-Cole Fletcher was also slashed but survived. In 2013, Fletcher won a 2013 poetry competition, the Verselandia poetry slam, with a poem condemning prejudices faced by Muslims, according to The Oregonian/OregonLive ( ). Portland police spokesman said the suspect was using "hate speech or biased language" when riding on the train.

As of now, the Federal Bureau of Investigation does not yet consider the crime a hate crime. The aggravated murder charges have the death penalty as a possible sentence.

Christian attended a previous free speech rally, held on April 29 and also organized by Bishop, and was captured on video giving a stiff-arm salute. Christian began arguing with several men. At one point, he threatens to stab the driver of the train Thursday, according to video from a passenger posted by TV station KOIN.
