At a commemoration in Christchurch, New Zealand, up to 40,000 people have been reminded of the victims of the terrorist attack on two mosques. The Sunday evening (local) event at Hagley Park was organized as an alternative to a concert by rock singer Bryan Adams, whose performance was canceled after the March 15 attacks. The participants of the vigil listened to prayers, songs and speeches.
Also present was 21-year-old Mustafa Boztas, who was wounded during the attack in the first attacked Al-Noor mosque. It's wonderful to see what the community has organized out of solidarity, he said. Meanwhile, about 6.6 million euros have been donated to the families of the 50 deaths on the Internet.
In the attack more than a week ago, 50 people were in two mosques killed in Christchurch by a suspected right-wing extremist terrorist from Australia. Two days ago, thousands of people had gathered for the Islamic Friday prayers and thought of the victims. Lots
