The First Minister, Carwyn Jones, has sent his condolences to President Obama after the tragic shootings in America.
27 people were killed when a gunman went on a shooting rampage in a school in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday.
In his letter, the First Minister said:
Dear Mr President, I write on behalf of the people of Wales to express our deepest condolences to you and the American people following the tragic and horrific events in Newtown, Connecticut.
No words can truly express the deep sense of shock and sadness of losing a child. To lose so many children in such horrific circumstances is truly heartbreaking.
We stand with you in your hour of grief.
