Legend leads stars' response to US shootings


Oscar-winning singer John Legend called for "peace" after five Dallas police officers were killed and six wounded by sniper fire, during protests against police shooting of black men.

He tweeted “Being against cops killing is not equal to being for killing cops. We need peace in our streets.”

Legend won the only Oscar for Martin Luther King film Selma, for co-writing its song Glory. Stars including Beyonce and Jay-Z have reacted to the shootings.
