Community leaders in South Carolina are calling for the removal of a Confederate flag from the grounds of the state capitol.
The flag, emblematic of the south during the US civil war, was embraced by the man accused of killing nine people in a black church last week.
To much applause at a news conference, Governor Nikki Haley called for the "removal of a symbol that divides us."
The Sons of Confederate Veterans says it will fight attempts to remove it.
The confederate group says it symbolizes their heritage and history, not hate. The group offered condolences to the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, where the attack took place. Rev. Nelson B. Rivers III, of the Charity Missionary Baptist Church, called the flag the "worst of South Carolina's past."
