The funerals of a further six victims including four children and the principal of Sandy Hook Elementary have taken place in Connecticut. In the town of Stratford the sound of bagpipes could be heard as grieving family and friends bid farewell to teacher Victoria Soto. The 27 year old died shielding her students from the shots fired by Adam Lanza.

Funerals were also scheduled for 6-year-old Charlotte Bacon, 7-year-old Daniel Barden and 6-year-old Caroline Previdi, while the family of 7-year-old Chase Kowalski invited mourners to a public prayer vigil. Principal Dawn Hochsprung was also laid to rest.

The massacre has shocked the United States and renewed calls for changes in gun control.
