Concert goers flee as a gunman opened fire on them in Las Vegas

At least 58 people have been killed and hundreds injured in a mass shooting at a Las Vegas concert.

A gunman, named as 64‑year‑old Nevada resident Stephen Paddock, opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel towards an open‑air music festival attended by 22,000 people.

He killed himself as police stormed the room where 10 guns were found.

Investigators have found no link to international terrorism, despite a claim from so‑called Islamic State.

The FBI said there is no connection to an international terrorist organisation."

Islamic State (IS) had claimed to be behind the attack, saying that Paddock had converted to Islam some months ago.

But the group provided no evidence for this and has made unsubstantiated claims in the past.
