Coverage of the Orlando terror attack has reverberated around the world. It has been deemed the worst act of terrorism in the United States since 9/11.

The Global Media called the tragedy the "American Horror Story." "Liberation," a French outlet, referred to it as "Another Gaping Wound."

A Japanese newspaper, Yomiuri Shimbun, wasn't due to publish a regular edition. Instead, they published a special edition of the paper detailing the horror.

Back in the United States, USA Today dug deeper into the shooter's life, relatives, and his ties to ISIS with headlines ranging from "Ex-wife: Orlando shooter 'very short tempered, violent'" to "Orlando shooter's father condemns massacre, but also gays."

The New York Post's coverage was titled, "Gunman pledged allegiance to ISIS before Florida gay club massacre."

The Washington Post's headline wasn't specific to the gunman himself, but discussed the tragedy as a whole. The publication wrote, "When tragedy hits, Americans stand divided." The article looks at views of political issues that have been the source of conflict among Americans for years.

Locally, the Orlando Sentinel focused on healing, titling one article, "Editorial: We'll heal from nightclub shooting #OrlandoUnited."

The hashtag has been prominent throughout social media, as users have taken to the Internet with an outpouring of grief and condolences for the victims.

GoFundMe pages have also been set up for victims who have been identified and their families.
