Hundreds attend vigil for Florida school shooting victims – World


Hundreds of people attended a vigil for the 17 victims of Wednesday’s school shooting in Florida.

The Thursday night vigil began with a moment of silence for those slain at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. Audible sobs rose from the crowd as the names of victims were read.

Dressed in the school’s colours, some held flowers while others wielded signs asking for action to fight school violence, including gun control. Members of the crowd spontaneously started shouting “no more guns, no more guns” at one point.

Nikolas Cruz, 19, has been charged with murder in the attack.
