Obama grieves: American hearts 'heavy with hurt'
Addressing a stunned nation, President Barack Obama on Saturday grieved for the children and teachers massacred at an elementary school in the US state of Connecticut, declaring that "every parent in America has a heart heavy with hurt."


Obama, addressing the tragedy for the second time since the violence erupted Friday, sympathized with the families of the dead and said he and his wife, Michelle, "are doing what I know every parent is doing - holding our children as close as we can and reminding them how much we love them." (AP)
