5,000 mourners attend funeral of victims killed in New Zealand

In New Zealand, over 5,000 people attended the funeral services at the Memorial Park for the victims who were brutally killed during the attack on two mosques in Christchurch. Thousands of others in New Zealand, Australia and in other countries gathered in a memorial dedicated to the victims. 50 persons were killed in the attack by Australian extremist Brenton Tarrant who shot at Muslim crowds who were praying at the two mosques.

Relatives and friends of the victims were visibly emotional during the gathering at the Memorial Park to pay their last farewell to victims from Pakistan, India, Malaysia, Indonesia and Turkey, among other countries, as flags were used to identify the victims’ identity.

Naeem Rashid was the first victim given the last farewell, who was described as a hero when he resisted Tarrant at the Al Noor mosque. The Australian extremist is facing murder charges of the 50 victims during the well-planned attack which was also transmitted live on Facebook.
