Fort Hood Shootings Latest News: US Soldier Nidal Hasan Shoots 13 Dead

fort-hoodIN the Soldier Readiness Centre Fort Hood, Texas, 13 are shot dead and 31 are wounded. Nidal Hasan is captured. The news:

At least eight people have been shot in an Orlando, Florida, high-rise office building, CNN affiliates report.
