Obama attends plant memorial

Hundreds of well wishers attend a memorial service in Waco, Texas for the 12 firefighters who died in an explosion at a fertilizer plant last week. Family and friends filed past the caskets which were draped with American flags in an auditorium at Baylor University. U.S. President Barack Obama assured the community that they have the country's support. (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA SAYING: "...We may not all live here in Texas but we're neighbors too. We're americans too. And we stand with you and we do not forget and we'll be there even after the cameras leave and after the attention turns elsewhere." 14 people were killed in the April 17th explosion at the West Fertilizer Company plant. The cause of the blast is still under investigation.
