Students in US planning gun reform rallies on Saturday

In the wake of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school, tens of thousands of students plan to take their gun-control reform message to the streets of Washington on Saturday.

    Tens of thousands of students in the US will converge on major cities on Saturday to demand gun reform.

    Organisers say the "March for Our Lives" demonstration could be one of the largest of its kind.

    It will be led by students from a Florida school where 17 people were shot dead last month.

    Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher reports from Washington, DC.
