New Zealand attack: Christchurch in mourning after mosque massacre – latest updates
Death toll from shooting at two mosques rises to 50, with 50 people injured
Hundreds of protesters held a symbolic funeral in Istanbul on Saturday to mourn the victims of the two New Zealand mosque shootings, AFP reports.
The suspected gunman charged over the attack in Christchurch published a document online that Turkish media said contained specific references to Turkey.
This morning outside the entrance to Hagley College, police armed with rifles have implemented a “zone of respect”; stretching 100 meters either side of the college and 60 meters across.
The zone or “boundary” of respect is sacred, a volunteer told the Guardian, and media and members of the public are being politely asked not to enter it, and allow the families peace and privacy, following complaints from grieving families that they were being “hounded” by the press.
