Christchurch mosque shooting victims mourned by loved ones as funerals begin

Numerous people leaving flowers have not been Muslim themselves.

The shootings happened in Christchurch, New Zealand, on Friday. "They may even be refugees here", Prime Minister Ardern reportedly said. Two explosive devices attached to suspects' vehicles have now been found and they have been disarmed.

Tarrant states in his writings that he took inspiration from many others, but most notably from Anders Breivik, a Norwegian far-right terrorist who killed eight people in an Oslo auto bombing in July 2011 in addition to shooting dead 69 other individuals at a summer camp for youth members of Norway's Labor Party.

"Part of that is addressing those types of things and fears that might be present now within the Muslim community of Saskatoon", he said.

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan echoed those sentiments.

"I blame these increasing terror attacks on the current Islamophobia post-9/11", Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan posted on social media.

In a tweet, Owens responded by saying that if the media portrayed her as the inspiration for the attack, it had better hire lawyers. This is a partial transcription of those press conferences in which she touches on her country's diversity, sending condolences to victims and their families and communities.

And our thoughts and prayers are with the people of New Zealand, with the families and friends of those who have died in these attacks and with all those who have been injured.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker tweeted that he learned of the attack "with horror and profound sadness".

Gardee said there is heightened anxiety in the Muslim community.

But despite criticising Mrs May's approach at the negotiating table, Mr Trump reiterated his desire for a strong UK-US trade deal. He said: "If they don't talk to us, we're going to do something pretty severe economically".


The Los Angeles Police Department posted to Twitter that while it had no indication that any related attacks would be carried out in the city, it would increase patrolling around L.A. mosques "out of an abundance of caution".

Residents pay respects by placing flowers for the victims of the mosques attacks at the Botanical Garden in Christchurch on March 16, 2019. "London will always celebrate the diversity that some seek to destroy".

Just before the shooter, who reportedly identified himself as 28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant, opened fire on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, he told viewers on his Facebook Live stream to "subscribe to PewDiePie".

Members of the Bangladesh cricket team, now on tour in New Zealand, said on social media that they had almost been caught up in the tragedy.

The statement does not mention Scheer by name but he is the only Canadian political leader whose public response to the attacks did not mention either Muslims or mosques.

A similar white top was worn by a woman shown in CCTV footage from the terminal minutes after Jong-nam was poisoned to death. Prosecutors had sprung a surprise on Monday by asking the court to drop the charge against Siti Aisyah and free her.


To target Muslims as they were attending their place of worship is despicable. "To move forward as a world, we need to recognize diversity as a source of strength, and not a threat".

Muath said his brother helped establish the mosque a year after arriving in New Zealand, where he teaches engineering at a university and runs a consultancy. He was set off by attacks in Europe that were perpetrated by Muslims.

The survivors included 17 members of Bangladesh's cricket team, whose game against New Zealand on Saturday has been postponed, and a Palestinian man who fled for his life after seeing someone being shot in the head.

Lebanon's Hezbollah militant group, which is considered a terrorist organization by Western countries, condemned the "policy of hatred that the United States is feeding around the world instead of prevailing religious values that call for forgiveness".

Historical ties with those two countries, as well as a general reaction to those events internationally impacted New Zealand's view on their own national laws.
