A white supremacist has been sentenced to death for the racially motivated killings of nine black people at a South Carolina church.

Dylann Roof was convicted last month of 33 federal charges, including hate crimes, after opening fire on a Bible study group in 2015.

He remained unrepentant and had told the jury: "I felt like I had to do it and I still feel like I had to do it."

The jurors deliberated for nearly three hours before reaching their verdict.

The massacre shocked the nation and reignited a debate about race relations and the flying of the Confederate flag.
