Columbine killers planned to kill 500
A Columbine student pays his respects at Monday's funeral
Investigators say the two students responsible for the Columbine High School massacre planned to murder 500 people and create destruction far beyond the Colorado suburb where they ran amok last Tuesday.
From the boy's diaries and the taunts they shouted as they attacked fellow students, the pair apparently carried out the shootings in revenge for insults from classmates who they said had made them outcasts.
They wanted to kill 500 people, hijack a plane and crash it into New York City, Jefferson County Sherrif department's spokesman, Steve Davis, told reporters.
Mr Davis said the diary had been found in Harris' bedroom alongside bomb- making materials and other weapons.
It also notes how the massacre had been a year in the planning and timed to coincide with Hitler's birthday.
Amazed at the firepower Harris and Klebold had managed to accumulate, investigators say they suspect that others may have been involved or at least known what they were planning.
Police questioned Klebold's 18-year-old girlfriend about whether she purchased two of the firearms used in the shootings.
Officials said the woman had not been named as a suspect and no arrests were imminent.
Funeral of a hero
Terrified pupils later said many of them owed their lives to Mr Sanders' quick thinking.
More than 2,000 people crowded into and around Littleton's Trinity Christian Center for Monday's funeral. A memorial service held in the town on Sunday was attended by more than 70,000 mourners including US Vice-President Al Gore.
Mourners gathered at three other services on Monday. About 2,000 people attended the funeral of Cassie Bernall, 17, the girl who answered "yes" when asked by one of the gunmen if she believed in God. The gunman then shot her dead.
"Cassie's response does not surprise us," the family said in a statement released at the funeral. "Her life was rightly centered around our lord Jesus."
Miss Townsend, 18, was captain of the girls' volleyball team and an honor student.
Daniel Rohrbough, 15, was killed while holding a door open for fellow students fleeing the gunmen. His funeral was held later on Monday.
Wall Street tribute
It has emerged that the parents on of the gunmen, 17-year old Dylan Klebold, sensed "tension" in their son several days before the attack.
"The goodbye had an edge to it," she told the pastor. "She thought, maybe he's in a bad mood. Maybe he's got a test today or something."
