A shot through the heart of the western world
At 12:31 Dallas time, several gunshots hit the US president in the heart and in the head - in front of running cameras. His wife Jackie Kennedy was with him at the time, as was his host, the governor of Texas, John Connally with his wife Nellie. Connally too, was seriously wounded. It is still not known how many shots were fired or in what order they were fired.
