ORLANDO, Fla. — Three years after a gunman massacred 49 people and wounded many others at a gay nightclub in central Florida, the anniversary was being observed Wednesday with somber memorial gatherings and proclamations, including one that had to be issued twice.

Mali massacre victims included 24 children: PM

Mali massacre victims included 24 children: PM Bodies recovered from a massacre of almost a 100 people by a Malian ethnic militia included at least 24 children, many of them shot in the back, the prime minister said during a visit to the crime scene on Tuesday. Attackers believed to belong to the Fulani ethnic group raided the rival Dogon village of Sobane Da, in central Mali, between Sunday and Monday. They killed at least 95 people and burned houses to the ground, in an escalation of the tit-for-tat ethnic slaughter that has engulfed the mostly Saharan nation this year.

WKMG reported that 49 people dressed as angels surrounded the club ahead of a private memorial service for friends and families of the victims early Monday. The angels — wearing wide white wings and carrying candles — were the same people who had shielded mourners in the days after the attack

In a proclamation, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis ordered state flags to be lowered to half staff and asked Floridians to pause to remember the victims of the 2016 shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. But he made no mention of the gay or Hispanic communities in the proclamation honoring the 49 club-goers who were killed on Latin night.

Democratic state Rep. Anna Eskamani of Orange County criticized the Republican governor for the omission, calling the proclamation, "straight-washed."

DeSantis later tweeted that the state mourns the loss of life from the attack that "targeted the LGBTQ and Hispanic community, and Florida as a whole."

Several hours later, his office issued a "corrected version" of the proclamation that said Florida wouldn't tolerate hate toward the LGBTQ and Hispanic communities.

After the governor's tweet, Eskmani wrote on Twitter, "Advocacy matters."

In the U.S. Senate, Florida's two Republican U.S. senators introduced a resolution honoring the 49 people killed on Latin night. The resolution, which passed with unanimous consent, noted that the massacre was "an attack on LGBTQ community, the Hispanic community, the city of Orlando, the state of Florida and the United States."

Gunman Omar Mateen was killed after a three-hour standoff by SWAT team members. He had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State. At the time, the Pulse massacre was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. However, another mass shooting the following year along the Las Vegas Strip became the deadliest when 58 people were killed.

In Orlando, churches were ringing bells 49 times at noon and a Wednesday night memorial service was planned outside the Pulse nightclub, which has been closed since the shooting in June 2016.

Some survivors and friends gathered at the club shortly after 2 a.m. Wednesday to mark the exact time the shooting started.

Pulse owner Barbara Poma has established a nonprofit to open a memorial and museum at the site. About $14 million has been raised for the $50 million project. Six design firms have been selected as finalists and the winner will be chosen in the fall. The permanent memorial and museum are scheduled to open in 2022.
