The bodies of two children Noah Pozner and Jack Pinto, both aged six who were killed in the shocking Sandy Hook Infant School massacre on Friday have been released for burial later today.
Jack Pinto will be buried in the Newtown Village Cemetery, and Noah Pozner will be buried at the B'Nai Israel Cemetery in the nearby town of Monroe, according to local media reports.
All 20 children who died in the shootings - eight boys and 12 girls - were aged between six and seven, according to an official list of the dead. The school's head teacher, Dawn Hochsprung, was among those killed.
Other victims' funerals will be held throughout the week.
