In the wake of America’s deadliest ever high school shooting, US president Donald Trump is considering a proposal to arm school teachers in an attempt to prevent mass shootings. The president floated the suggestion at a meeting with survivors of mass shootings on Wednesday.

These are some of the stories we have in store in the International Edition, a programme that highlights stories packaged by the Editorial team of Euronews presented by Elayne Wangalwa.
