Seven students and a school principal have been killed by a pupil who opened fire with a handgun hours after posting a video on YouTube predicting a massacre.
The gunman, 18-year-old Pekka-Eric Auvinen, later died in hospital from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Witnesses described chaos and panic as Auvinen shot dead his headmistress, five boys, two girls, and wounded a dozen others as they tried to flee the carnage.
