Relatives of John F Kennedy are horrified to learn of a new video game recreating the late American President's death, which was released on the 41st anniversary of the fatal incident.

A spokesman for the late US leader's bother, Senator EDWARD M KENNEDY, has branded the game "despicable". Scottish-based firm TRAFFIC describes JFK RELOADED, which is available for download on the internet, as an educational "docugame" which will help disprove conspiracy theories about Kennedy's death.

The company's managing director KIRK EWING says, "(The game will) stimulate a younger generation of players to take an interest in this fascinating episode of American history."

In the game, which was released on Monday (21NOV04), players get to re-create three shots fired at Kennedy's car by assassin LEE HARVEY OSWALD from the Texas School Book Depository.
