Orlando gun massacre: Barack Obama consoles bereaved during low-key visit
President Barack Obama has visited Orlando to try to console those mourning the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.
Air Force One touched down in the grief-stricken community, where Mr Obama planned to spend a few hours meeting in private with families of the 49 victims and survivors.
The low-profile visit reflected the challenge for the president to find something meaningful to say about an attack that has stoked a wide mix of fears about terrorism, guns and violence against gay people. Even as the families of the victims bury their loved ones, it is unclear what led a 29-year-old Muslim born in New York to open fire in a gay nightclub early on Sunday.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Mr Obama would deal with the ambiguity in the Florida shooting by focusing on the victims.
