President Barack Obama has said the US "could do more" to keep firearms out of the hands of those suffering from mental health issues.

Mr Obama was speaking at a memorial for the victims of a gun attack at Ford Hood military base in Texas last Wednesday.

Army Specialist Ivan Lopez was reportedly being assessed for post-traumatic stress disorder when he shot dead three men, before turning the gun on himself.
