Wounded congressman sends Father's Day message

James T. Hodgkinson opened fire on Republican members of Congress during a Virginia baseball practice on Wednesday.

Top US Republican lawmaker Steve Scalise continued to show improvement as he recovers from being shot by a gunman angry about President Donald Trump, the hospital treating him said Saturday.

Mr Scalise was shot as he fielded at second base during practice for an annual Republicans-Democrats baseball game.

The gunman shot four others before being fatally wounded by Capitol Police officers who were serving in Scalise's security detail.

The update comes just one day after a doctor told reporters here that Scalise is not only expected to walk again but "hopefully run" some time after he is released from the hospital. The congressman underwent another surgery Saturday, and the hospital says he is more responsive and speaking with family.

The Russian military said Friday it is investigating whether an airstrike in the Syrian desert has killed Abu Bakr Baghdadi, Islamic State's self-described "caliph".

Scalise remains in critical condition in the hospital's intensive care unit.

Scalise will require additional operations, Sava said, adding that it's hard to predict how long he will be in the hospital.
