Hoboken holds vigil for Orlando terrorist victims

People joined at City Hall to honor the dozens of terrorist victims in Orlando last weekend with Mayor Zimmer and the Hoboken City Council outside City Hall.

Related: During the early am hours of the Orlando terrorist attack, Omar Mateen made more than a dozen phone calls and posted to his Facebook account. New reports obtaining those comments the terrorist offered are just published.

Among them, Mateen wrote during the lull of hours in the attack, "You kill innocent women and children by doing us taste the Islamic state vengeance."

In his final written pronouncement, the Orlando terrorist predicted, "In the next few days you will see attacks from the Islamic state in the usa."
