TRENTON - New Jersey will remember the victims of the nightclub shootings in Orlando, Florida.

Gov. Chris Christie on Thursday ordered all state government buildings to fly flags at half-staff on Friday in honor of the 49 people killed in the terror attack.

In his executive order, the Republican says the attack was purposely directed against members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, and "represents a deliberate and callous assault on the freedoms we cherish as Americans."
