New Zealand and the rest of the world are in mourning following events on Friday 15th March 2019.

A terrorist attack was carried out on the Al Noor mosque and the Linwood mosque in Christchurch.

New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, described the incidents as one of New Zealand’s “darkest days”.

This type of attack is extremely rare in New Zealand. Gun violence is lower than many other countries, including the United States and Australia.
