WASHINGTON - The United States saw more hate crimes in 2016 than the previous year, but experts said the problem may be bigger than the number indicated.

The total number of hate crimes last year was 6,121, with an increase of 4.6 percent, compared with 5,850 in 2015, according to new data released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Monday.

Those incidents, the report said, were motivated by bias toward race, ethnicity, ancestry, religion, sexual orientation, disability, gender or gender identity.
