    Police have charged a man accused of attacking three massage parlours in the US city of Atlanta with eight counts of murder.

    Six of the victims in Tuesday’s killings were women of Asian descent.

    The suspect told police he was not motivated by race but investigators say they are not ruling the possibility out.

    Some communities have formed citizen patrols in response to the rise in anti-Asian attacks after former President Donald Trump said COVID-19 came from China.
