Reports say eight people, including at least six Asian women, have been killed in shootings at three different spas in the US State of Georgia.
Police said four people were killed at a massage parlour in Acworth, a suburb north of Atlanta, and four more or two spas in the city itself.
Officials said a twenty-one-year-old man had been arrested and was believed to be the suspect in all three attacks.
No motive for Tuesday’s shootings has yet been established
However, hate crimes against Asian-Americans have spiked in recent months, fuelled by rhetoric that blames Asian people for the spread of Covid-19.
