Governor Hickenlooper: Aurora 'coming together'

The governor of Colorado says the community will come together after a gunman killed 12 people and injured dozens more at a cinema in Aurora.

John Hickenlooper paid tribute to the efforts of the emergency and support services, and said that the city would "rise and lift ourselves above this attack".

A man wearing a gas mask and body armour threw tear gas canisters at movie-goers, then fired on the crowd.

Suspect James Holmes, 24, was arrested outside the cinema near Denver.
