Obama in Newtown to offer love, prayers of nation

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) -- President Barack Obama is offering the Connecticut town grappling with the aftermath of a deadly school shooting "the love and prayers of a nation."

The president says he is mindful that mere words cannot match the depth of the sorrow in Newtown, Conn. Twenty children and six adults were killed at an elementary school there Friday.

Obama is telling the families of the victims that they are not alone in their grief. He says people all across the country have wept with them.

The president is speaking at a vigil following his private meetings with the families and first responders.
