Residents of Birmingham, in the US state of Alabama, have been remembering a racially-motivated bombing, 50 years after it happened.

The attack on the 16th Street Baptist Church, an African American church in Birmingham, on September 15, 1963, marked a turning point in the country's 1960s civil rights movement and contributed to support for passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Some of the victims say the civil rights struggle is still ongoing in many parts of the US five decades later.
