(London Mirror) Facebook page claiming to represent a black power group has posted messages claiming responsibility for the deaths of five police officers in Dallas.
The so-called Black Power Political Organization claimed on its Facebook account that it was behind the attack in which cops were picked out from an 'elevated position' - believed to be a multi-storey car park.
It came in the week of public outrage over the deaths of two unarmed black men shot by police.

There were initial reports there could have been up to three or four snipers involved in a co-ordinated attack during a peaceful Black Live Matter protest.
However - while two men and one women have been arrested in connection with the attacks - it's being claimed tonight that police are operating on the theory of a 'lone gunman' being responsible.
