Celebrities respond to Las Vegas shooting and criticise American gun laws

Stars have been reacting to Monday's mass shooting in Las Vegas, in which at least 59 people died and more than 500 were injured.

Police are trying to work out why Stephen Paddock, 64, decided to open fire on a crowd at a music festival from the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel.

Officers later found 23 guns in his hotel room and explosives at his house.

One of the most emotional responses came from late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who's from Las Vegas.

He started his programme on Monday with a 10-minute monologue about the attack and broke down several times while talking about the tragedy.
