Young survivors of Wednesday's(Feb.14) school shooting in Florida in the US have taken part in an emotionally charged rally demanding tighter gun controls.

Protesters in Fort Lauderdale chanted "shame on you", referring to US lawmakers and President Donald Trump.

He said last year he would "never" infringe on the right to keep arms.

Suspect Nikolas Cruz has admitted carrying out the attack at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, in which 17 people died.

It was the deadliest US school shooting since 2012 and has re-ignited long-running debates about tougher firearm restrictions.
