HEARTBREAK VIDEO: Obama weeps over the 'Sandy Hook killing'

US President Barack Obama gave an immediate speech over the malicious killing of 20 pupils and seven adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newton, US.

Authorities told AP the gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza killed his mother (who is also a teacher at the school) before driving to the school in her car, where he targeted two classrooms in one section of the building. Lanza also died after shooting himself.
Obama said in his statement before shedding tears: "As a country, we have been through this too many times. Whether it’s an elementary school in Newtown, or a shopping mall in Oregon, or a temple in Wisconsin, or a movie theater in Aurora, or a street corner in Chicago — these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods, and these children are our children."
