The small Texas town of Uvalde has begun burying its children, killed last week in the deadliest school shooting in the United States in a decade.
Funerals were scheduled on Tuesday for two 10-year-old girls who were among the 19 students, all aged nine to 11, and two teachers killed when a gunman burst into Robb Elementary School on May 24 and opened fire in a fourth-grade classroom.
Hundreds of mourners turned out for an afternoon mass to remember Amerie Jo Garza. Six pallbearers wearing white shirts and gloves carried her small casket into Sacred Heart Catholic Church, which turned away several mourners after reaching capacity.
