Pittsburgh synagogue suspect indicted on 44 counts, AP reports

Robert Bowers, a 46-year-old truck driver from Baldwin, Pennsylvania, was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges related to Saturday's devastating shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in which 11 victims were killed.

The indictment charges Bowers with killing 11 people, and for each of those victims, he faces separate counts of obstruction of free exercise of religion resulting in death, and using a firearm to commit murder during a crime of violence.

The two brothers, who lived at a home for people with disabilities, were among the 11 mostly elderly congregants killed when a gunman stormed into the Tree of Life synagogue and opened fire on worshippers, yelling: "All Jews must die".

Donald Trump on Tuesday visited the Pittsburgh synagogue where 11 people were gunned down at the weekend in an anti-Semitic attack, as more than 1,000 protesters gathered nearby to make it clear the United States president was unwelcome.

Authorities have not said whether Bowers - who was wounded during the gun battle with police responding to the synagogue - is cooperating with investigators or detailed what he may have told them. He was in a wheelchair at his first court appearance Monday.

Bowers faces 29 federal charges, including some hate crimes.

He spoke little, other than to say he understood the charges against him, followed by entering a plea of "not guilty".

Amid the first funerals for victims on Tuesday, Trump visited Tree of Life.

The approximately 40 high schoolers at the Hillel Academy of Pittsburgh attended Wednesday's funeral for Joyce Fienberg, whose niece used to teach at their school.

Mr Trump's visit was met with outrage from thousands of protestors, who took to the streets to march against the US President's arrival.

Funerals for husband and wife Bernice and Sylvan Simon and Dr Richard Gottfried, a dentist who worked part-time at a clinic treating refugees and immigrants, were held on Thursday.

On Tuesday afternoon, after the day's funerals were over, Trump and first lady Melania Trump arrived in Pittsburgh to shouting, chanting protesters with signs such as "It's your fault" and "Words matter", a reference to allegations that Trump's combative language has emboldened bigots.

"He wanted today to be about showing respect for the families and the friends of the victims as well as for Jewish Americans", Sanders said. I didn't want the gunman to hear him.
