Vice President Joe Biden says the assassination of five Dallas police officers "touched the soul of the nation" and calls for unity amid racial tensions.
"As Americans, we are wounded by all of these deaths," Biden says in the White House's weekly radio address, noting the police were killed while protecting a peaceful protest against the police killing of two black men elsewhere in the country.
"It's on all of us to stand up, to speak out about disparities in our criminal justice system; just as it's on all of us to stand up for the police who protect us in our communities every day," Biden says.
He calls for the US not to "be pulled apart" by the violence.
