Hundreds of students gathered in New Zealand to pay tribute to the victims of New Zealand’s worst massacre.
28-year-old Brenton Harrison Tarrant, a white supremacist, attacked two mosques in Christchurch, leaving 50 innocent people dead.
Tearful students performed haka dance – a traditional Maori ceremonial dance – to pay tribute to the victims of Christchurch massacre.
While some lit candles and embraced outside the Al Noor mosque.
Meanwhile, New Zealand’s government is planning to tighten gun laws. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said:
‘We have made a decision as a cabinet, we are unified.’
Deputy prime minister, Winston Peters, said: ‘The reality is that after one pm on Friday our world changed forever, and so will our laws,’
Prime Minister Jacinda Arden met families of the victims and said:
‘Hagley Park, very much the focus on them was being able to access their loved ones. Front of mind for them, of course, is fulfilling their religious expectations and that is burial.’
She also spoke to Muslim leaders at the refugee centre.
‘At the meeting at the refugee centre, their community leaders shared the same sentiment that has come through from New Zealanders generally that,’
‘This is not the New Zealand they know.’
‘This is not the New Zealand that has welcomed them and that it is not a reflection of the New Zealand they know, and that sentiment came through very strongly.’
