Breaking News:Fatal shooting at US Amish school

A number of people have been shot dead in a gun attack at an Amish school in the US state of Pennsylvania. The attack happened at a one-room school in the town of Nickel Mines in Lancaster County.

“There are a number of people dead,” Police Cpl Ralph Striebig said. “The exact number I do not know yet.”

TV footage has shown dozens of emergency workers carrying victims on stretchers, watched by anxious members of the Amish community.

The Amish are Anabaptist Christians who live away from the modern world, with restrictions on the use of modern devices such as cars and telephones.
