(AP) -

President Barack Obama plans to meet privately today with some of the families of the victims of last weekend's shooting massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

Obama travels to the city to offer solace and healing to a distraught town that's been mourning 49 victims and praying for the recovery of dozens of others who were wounded.

The White House says Obama also plans to speak publicly, "to make clear that the country stands with the people of Orlando, stands with the LGBT community in Orlando, as they grieve for their loss."
