DOVER – President Obama Friday ordered American flags at all U.S. government buildings and facilities to be flown at half-staff until sunset on Tuesday, December 18, “as a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut.” In concurrence with the President’s order and as an expression of Delaware’s sympathy for the people affected by the tragedy in Connecticut, Gov. Markell has ordered the American and Delaware flags at state buildings and facilities also be flown at half-staff until the end of the day on December 18.
