Teens Rally For Gun Control At White House

Dozens of teenage students have held a "lie-in" on the pavement in front of the White House to demand presidential action on gun control after 17 students were killed in a school shooting in Florida.

The teenagers were also joined by parents and educators. The protesters held their arms crossed at their chests. Two activists were covered by an American flag, another was holding a sign asking, "Am I next?"

Ella Fesler, a 16-year-old high school student in Alexandria, Virginia, said, "It's really important to express our anger and the importance of finally trying to make a change and having gun control in America."

She added, "Every day when I say 'bye' to my parents, I do acknowledge the fact that I could never see my parents again."

US President Donald Trump was at his Florida golf club, about 64km from the site of the school shooting.
