Mourners attend funeral of teacher killed in Russian school shooting

Mourners attend the funeral of English teacher Elvira Ignatyeva, the day after a lone gunman killed nine victims, mostly children, at a Russian school in one of the country's worst shooting incidents in recent history. Flags are flying at half-mast on official buildings for a day of mourning after the shooting left seven students and two adults dead. According to TASS news agency, Elvira Ignatyeva shielded students from the shooter. 18 children are in hospital, including eight with gunshot wounds and two in critical condition.
