Christchurch

Two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand were a target of mass shootings on Friday afternoon. The mosques were full of worshippers attending prayers and approximately 49 people have been killed and 48 wounded.



New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has described it as a terrorist attack and one of New Zealand’s “darkest days”. A gunman identifying himself as an Australian live-streamed the rampage at Al Noor mosque to Facebook.

Local and international celebrities have condemned the attack on social media. Pakistani celebrities from all walks of life also came forward and expressed their distress while sending prayers to those affected.
