Remembering US campus killings

Forty years have passed since US troops fired on anti-war protesters, killing four.

    Forty years ago National Guard troops in the US state of Ohio fired on students who were protesting against the Vietnam war at Kent State university.

    Four students were killed that day, piercing the conscience of people across the country.

    It became a defining moment for the US anti-war movement.

    Al Jazeera's Nick Spicer looks at what the events of Kent State mean for today.
