Extra! Local And Global Reaction To Virginia Shooting
Wednesday's killing of TV station WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward by fired station employee Vester Flanagan, left Virginia in a "state of shock," as described by local daily The Roanoke Times Thursday, alongside a picture of a community vigil for the slain journalists.
The live, on-camera shooting, together with its immediate diffusion through social media, also sent instant ripples across the world.
Spanish daily La Razon was one of many foreign newspapers to run a chilling screengrab of the attacker's video on its Thursday front page. Most U.S. dailes opted not to publish images of the attack, as websites and TV stations also debated the merits of showing the frightening video.
