    Barack Obama says the United States must do more to protect its children from violence. The US president spoke at a special service in Connecticut to mourn the killing of 26 people, including 20 schoolchildren, in an attack on the Sandy Hook primary school on Friday. It was an emotional speech, and came with a promise that Obama will do what he can to prevent gun violence. Al Jazeera's John Terrett reports
