Floral tributes continue to mount outside the school gates of Dunblane Primary School in Scotland - the scene of Wednesday's horrific massacre.

A lone gunman killed 16 pupils and their teachers in the school's gymnasium before killing himself.

Floral tributes continued to mount Thursday at the school gates of Dunblane Primary School as the community tried to come to terms with Wednesday's horrific events.

Hundreds of bouquets were delivered throughout the day as the school remained closed under police guard.

Both young and old placed their flowers on the growing pile.

The violent deaths of so many young children, all of them were aged five and six has deeply shocked this town and the whole country.

One bouquet called them ``Angels'' others asked ``why?''

Thursday night saw hundreds gather for mass at the Holy Family Catholic Church in Dunblane.

Called a 'Mass for the Tragedy', they came to mourn and share their grief with the rest of the community.

The mass was closed to the media so they could be spared the

spotlight which has been on them ever since Wednesday morning.

This town of 9-thousand people is a strong churchgoing community and the church hopes its services will offer some comfort to them.

Dunblane Cathedral, a Church of Scotland place of worship, will also hold a service of 'reconciliation and support' on Sunday.

Police in Dunblane, Scotland are today Thursday carrying out an intense fingertip search of the school where sixteen infants and their teacher were massacred by a lone gunman.

The school will stay closed at least until Monday. Meanwhile outside the school gates, flowers have been arriving from all over the world. They've joined the intensely personal floral tributes from the residents of a stunned and shattered Dunblane.

Dunblane school is closed and under police guard the day after the horrific shooting spree which killed 16 children aged five and six. Their teacher also died in the hail of bullets.

Shocked members of the community brought flowers and teddy bears to the school gates, intensely personal tributes from a community suffering the agonies of intense loss

The school itself bears the scars of the massacre.

In the dead children's classroom a banner, still hangs welcoming people to their school... their coats and scarves are still hanging in the corridors.

Bullet holes and broken windows around the site of the slaughter bear testament to the frenzied attack.

The media were allowed a brief visit into the school grounds for filming Thursday while police continue their investigation in to the massacre.

The tragedy has touched everyone.

SOUNDBITE:

Today we're carrying out full ballistics and forensic examinations of the school. We're still trying to build as complete a picture as we'll ever be able to build up of what actually happened during that tragic ten minutes yesterday morning. Its been very traumatic for me, a resident of Dunblane as well, and I do know some the parents who lost children yesterday.

SUPER CAPTION: Chief Constable William Wilson, Chief Constable for Central Scotland

Many of the newspapers bore the school photo of Primary 1 with 28 faces smiling out at passers-by, 16 of those children and teacher Gwen Mayor are now dead.

Although Dunblane locals know their town will survive the tragedy because of the strength of the community spirit, they wish their town had remained in obscurity.

SOUNDBITE:

I think people from Dunblane will pull together The only trouble will be the labeling of the place, it'll be remembered for all the wrong reasons, won't it?

SUPER CAPTION: Donald Christie, Father

15 other people, adults and small children were injured in the most savage massacre of its kind the United Kingdom has ever experienced.

The teenager suspected of spraying gunfire into a crowded high school cafeteria in Springfield, Oregon, has appeared in court for the first time.

The suspect, 15-year-old Kip Kinkel, was escorted by police past waiting media on his way into the court room.

Kinkel faces adult charges of murder - if convicted, he could be sentenced to life imprisonment.

Under Oregon law, juveniles cannot get the death penalty.

Investigators said on Friday that the rampage - which left 23 students hurt - could have been worse if it hadn't been for the heroics of student wrestler Jake Ryker,

Ryker apparently tackled the gun wielding youth, and despite being shot managed to tear the gun away.

But his family say he doesn't think of himself as a hero.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"He does not like being called a hero because neither him nor I think we are heroes (Q: Why not?) "It just doesn't seem that way we just did what we were taught"

SUPER CAPTION: Josh Ryker, Brother of Jake Ryker

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"We all feel that everybody in that cafeteria that day did their part - they were all heroes. If it wasn't for a big group effort there would have been a whole lot more injuries."

SUPER CAPTION: Mrs Linda Ryker, Mother of Jake Ryker

Police on Friday said they'd found two bombs in the house of the teenager suspected of spraying gunfire into a crowded high school cafeteria.

Hospital officials meanwhile announced that a second schoolboy had died after being injured in the shooting.

Sixteen-year-old Ben Walker died from head wounds - he had been on a life support machine.

The suspect, 15-year-old Kip Kinkel, was scheduled to make his first court appearance later in the day.

A day after a teenager opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle in a crowded cafeteria, students and teachers at Thurston High School in Oregon were still trying to come to terms with the murderous rampage.

Flowers and handmade cards lined the fence to the schoolyard.

The shooting has claimed two lives so far - almost two dozen others teens are recovering from their injuries.

The latest victim - 16-year-old Ben Walker - suffered head wounds. He died on Friday morning after struggling on life support.

The first victim - Mikael Nickolauson - was killed instantly when the teenager opened fire during a morning breakfast meeting of the Senior Men's Excellence group.

The death toll could have been worse. Up to 400 people were milling around the cafeteria when the shooting began.

The suspect - 15-year-old Kip Kinkel - had been suspended from school for having a gun in his locker.

Witnesses say he displayed classic signs of violence: the animal tortures, the fascination with guns and a quick temper that once led him to karate kick another student in the head for calling him a name.

Authorities now fear that Kinkel may try to kill himself.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"He is on a suicide watch not because he's done anything but because of when he was captured he indicated 'Just kill me now.' We take that very seriously of course so he's on a suicide watch in an individual room with staff right there. "

SUPER CAPTION:Steve Carmichael, Director of Youth Services

Police have sealed off the young suspect's home, where the bodies believed to be of his

parents were found inside along with at least two suspected homemade bombs.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"Last night they recovered two home made bombs; one was rendered safe - it's often referred to as an improvised explosive device. It's constructed of a timing device, electrical circuitry and approximately a one pound explosive charge. It's unknown precisely what the composition of that charge is, that'll have to be determined as the result of forensic procedures. The second device was also rendered safe however a portion of that, because it was unable to be detonated in place, and they put that in a bomb basket that would be transported to a site where it would be safely disposed of."

SUPER CAPTION: Bill DeForest, Chief, Springfield Police Department

Kinkel had been arrested, suspended and released to his parents' custody a day earlier on a charge of possession of a stolen firearm.

Around town, neighbours were still trying to come to terms with the murders.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"I have friends that have children that go to school there and I was trying to get through and call and see if they were OK and it was quite upsetting."

SUPER CAPTION: Vox pop

Everyone has been searching for an answer to comprehend why a 15-year-old boy would take a semi-automatic rifle into school and randomly slaughter his classmates.

Some have taken to blaming the media.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"People read this stuff, they react from it. We have copycat people who do things like this. That doesn't totally start it or stop it but that's part of it. I think we have too much coverage."

SUPER CAPTION: Vox Pop

Kinkel will be in court later on Friday.

Prosecutors say he will be charged as an adult with murder.

A second schoolboy has died after being shot in a high school cafeteria in Springfield, Oregon.

Hospital officials say 16-year-old Ben Walker died from head wounds. The teenager had been on a life support machine.

Suspect, 15-year-old Kip Kinkel, is scheduled to make his first court appearance later on Friday,

Police haven't confirmed yet that two bodies found in Kinkel's home are those of his parents.

A day after one of their classmates opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle in a crowded cafeteria, students and teachers at Thurston High School in Oregon were still trying to come to terms with his murderous rampage.

Flowers and handmade cards lined the fence to the schoolyard. So far two students have died and almost two dozen others teens are injured.

It's the deadliest school rampage ever in the United States.

Officials now say 15 people were killed in Tuesday's shootings at Columbine High in suburban Denver.

That number includes four females and 11 males - two of whom were the suspected student gunmen.

A sheriff's spokesman also says one teacher may be among the 15 dead.

Investigators, meanwhile, have conducted an initial sweep of the school.

Some 30 different bomb devices were found - many were at the school, others were found at the home of the suspects.

Some of the devices were pipe bombs, others may have been on timers.

Because investigators are still checking abandoned lockers and backpacks at Columbine High School, it may still be hours before the bodies are removed from the school.

Survivors, officials and townspeople are struggling to understand the rampage.

Students and Denver media identified the gunmen as 18-year-old Eric Harris and 17-year-old Dylan Klebold .

The two exchanged shots with police and were later found dead in the library with self-inflicted gunshot wounds and bombs around their bodies.

Both youths had two parents at home and came from families neighbours described as fine people.

While the motive was unclear, several students said Harris and Klebold were members of a group calling itself the "Trenchcoat Mafia".

The gang was made up of outcasts who bragged about guns and bombs and hated blacks

and Hispanics, as well as athletes.

Police who searched Harris' home said they found bomb-making material.

Students said the group was fascinated with World War II and the Nazis and noted that Tuesday was Adolf Hitler's birthday.

President Clinton has urged Americans to come together, pray together and act together in the wake of the Littleton school shooting.

He led a moment of silence on Wednesday at the start of a meeting with White House volunteers.

Clinton spoke of the "horror and agony" of Tuesday's attack in the Denver suburb.

But he also praised the quick thinking of police and the courage of students and teachers who rushed to protect each other.

Aides say Clinton is considering visiting the school - but only when it won't disrupt recovery efforts.

The president did cancel a planned trip to Texas, considering it inappropriate to be

celebrating an airport opening and attending Democratic fund-raising receptions in the aftermath of Littleton's tragedy.

Tuesday's rampage was by far the bloodiest in a string of school shootings that have rocked U.S. communities over the past few years. It left people around the world stunned and horrified, with many newspapers carrying it as their top story.

A day after the deadliest school massacre America has ever experienced, students and faculty of Columbine High School were still trying to cope with the shock and the grief.

Victims' bodies were left in the school overnight as agonised parents braced for the worst.

Tearful students streamed into a park next to the school to leave flowers and share their feelings about the tragedy.

Most agreed Tuesday's horrific events still don't seem real, and they struggled to understand why it occurred.

Sophomore Jessica Cave hid for three hours in a supply cabinet as the gunmen went on their rampage.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

\"Physically I'm fine but emotionally it will be hard.\"

SUPER CAPTION:Jessica Cave, Student

Jessica is one of the lucky ones.

The Jefferson County sheriff's department puts the death toll at 15.

Some of the victims were found underneath desks, in cubicles or boxes - slain while apparently trying to hide.

Landen Jones was in the library just before the gunmen burst in.

His friend, he fears, is still inside.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

\"If some of our friends - a friend of mine was in the library with me maybe 20 minutes before the whole thing took place didn't even - no one never even heard from him last night and his parents were still looking for him. I still haven't hear a thing - they haven't found him I guess.

SUPER CAPTION: Landen Jones, Student

SOUNDBITE: (English)

\"A boy that I went to Germany with a month ago for two weeks died - so that's pretty hard - he was a senior.\"

SUPER CAPTION: Jennifer Sumida, Student

As this Colorado community struggles to understand the tragedy, some students here believe they could have some answers.

Teachers and neighbors of the alleged gunmen describe the boys as bright, and from good families.

But students say the suspects were members of a group called the \"Trench coat Mafia...\" outcasts who bragged about guns and bombs and hated blacks and Hispanics, as well as athletes.

Others say, the suspects were victimised - constantly ridiculed for not \"fitting in.\"

SOUNDBITE: (English)

\"They never seemed that they would do something like this. No one saw it coming.

Q: Were they ridiculed a lot?

\"Yes they were pushed against lockers,called faggots, everybody looked at them like they didn't belong they didn't fit in. Our school is based on appearance and if you don't look - dress in Abercombire and Fitch (Clothing brand) then you're not a part of their group.

SUPER CAPTION: Nichole Schlieve, Student

Meanwhile, authorities say they've given tentative notifications to families of the 15 people who died.

Police investigating the tragedy say they want to know who else was involved.

A prosecutor says the inquiry will focus on anyone who might have had advance knowledge of what was going to happen -- and anyone who might have helped the two suspected gunmen.
