NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The White House on Sunday (June 12) lowered the flag at the executive residence for the victims of the shooting massacre in Orlando, Florida.

The Islamic State's Amaq news agency claimed on Sunday that the militant group was behind the shooting but fellow U.S. Senator from Florida Bill Nelson said that claim was not yet confirmed. U.S. President Barack Obama said Americans would stand united and "not give in to fear or turn against each other" in the wake of the nightclub attack.
