By Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - Dylann Roof, the white man charged in the shooting of nine African Americans at a South Carolina church, entered a "temporary" not guilty plea on Friday to federal hate crime charges in connection to the massacre. U.S. Magistrate Judge Bristow Marchant accepted the plea after Roof's lawyer David Bruck said he could not advise his client to plead guilty, as the defendant wanted to do, until prosecutors declared whether they would seek the death penalty. More than two dozen relatives of the victims and survivors of last month's massacre at Charleston's Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church packed the courtroom for Roof's arraignment on a 33 federal hate crime and firearms charges.

The annual convention of the National Urban League marked the first same-stage appearance for Clinton, front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, and Bush, one of the leading candidates in the Republican race. Democrats have long counted on African Americans as a loyal voting bloc, whereas the Republican Party acknowledged after its loss in the 2012 presidential race that it needed to build support among minorities to win the presidency.
