Three people of Mexican origin were among the 49 killed in the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto said on Monday.

In a separate statement, Mexico's foreign ministry said the three were Mexican nationals and said it was trying to confirm with U.S. authorities if a fourth Mexican was among those killed.

"This is an act truly filled with horror, terror and hatred," Pena Nieto said. "In the name of Mexico and our society I want to express our strong solidarity with the families of the victims."
