Following the horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas which left 59 people dead and over 500 people injured, the flag at the U.S. Consulate in Bermuda has been lowered to half mast as a mark of respect for the victims.

A Consulate spokesperson said, “It’s a heart-breaking day for those affected by this senseless tragedy. Right now, our thoughts are centered on the victims and the devastated families and friends who have been impacted.”
