Word from officials on Monday confirmed what many felt in the pit of their stomach — the tragic incident in Orlando became the worst mass shooting in modern US history.

Photos from around the world show many coming together to stand in solidarity with the victims.

And while there is debate around whether we call the shootings 'terrorism' or a 'hate crime,' it is without a doubt a tragedy for everyone.

Here is a collection of how cartoonists are reacting to the massacre in Orlando.
