The father of a gunman who killed dozens of people in an Orlando gay club says he did not know that his son had a "grudge in his heart".

Omar Mateen killed 49 people and wounded 53 more in the deadliest mass shooting in recent US history, before being shot dead by police.

Seddique Mateen said he did not understand why his son had carried out the shooting at the Pulse nightclub.

The so-called Islamic State group called Omar Mateen one of its soldiers.
