The murder of President John F. Kennedy shocked the world.

The murky circumstances of his death have since spawned a federal investigation and numerous conspiracy theories – which will hopefully be explained as the full batch of JFK files are released.

New reports suggest Kennedy’s chronic back problems may have aided his assassin 54 years ago today.

On November 23, 1963, the day after the shooting, the front pages of newspapers across the US and around the globe reflected the shock and despair of the moment. Here’s what they looked like:
