Prayer services have been held throughout north Texas following Friday’s atrocity in which 12 police officers were shot – five of them fatally. The incident occurred when a gunman with links to far-right groups opened fire on police officers guarding a protest rally. The protest was being held in response to the deaths of two black men who were shot and killed by police in separate incidents earlier in the week in Minnesota and Louisiana.
