US and Mississippi flags at half-staff

Posted: Updated:

All United States and State of Mississippi flags will be flown at half-staff on all buildings and grounds under the state's jurisdiction until sunset April 20.

That order came Tuesday from Governor Phil Bryant in honor of those affected by the tragedy in Boston.

It follows a proclamation from President Barack Obama ordering the United States flag to be flown at half staff on all public buildings and grounds.
