New Zealand digs graves as mosque massacre toll rises to 50

Australian Man Appears In Court On Murder Charge After Christchurch Attack

People gather at a vigil to mourn for the victims of the Christchurch mosque attack in New Zealand, at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S., March 15, 2019.

A steady stream of mourners arrived at a makeshift memorial outside the Al Noor mosque, where hundreds of flowers lay piled amid candles, balloons and notes of grief and love.

Another 34 victims remained at Christchurch Hospital, where officials said 12 were in critical condition.

"We are a Forum family and what affects one, affects all".

The New Zealand Red Cross has published a list of missing persons on its website.

Leaders around the world expressed sorrow and disgust at the attacks, with some deploring the demonisation of Muslims.

"Unfortunately, we are all too familiar with the devastating effect a mass shooting has on a faith community", said Meryl Ainsman, chair of the board of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh.

Ms Yasmin Ali, a Christchurch resident, told New Zealand's 1 News that she lost a close family friend who she loved like a grandfather and now fears she could be targeted just for wearing her headscarf in public.

Ansun Zhong, owner of Chong's Chinese restaurant in Christchurch City Central, said the shooting greatly affected people's life in Christchurch.

The violence has also shone a new light on gun control.

Footage of the attack on one of the mosques in the city of Christchurch was broadcast live on Facebook, and a "manifesto" denouncing immigrants as "invaders" was also posted online via links to related social media accounts. It was a place where many came to for their safety. For many this may have not been the place they were born.

NZ Police Commissioner Mike Bush revealed on Sunday the body of the 50th victim had been found in the Masjid Al Noor mosque on Deans Avenue on Saturday night.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern confirmed that the first of the bodies would be released on Sunday afternoon.

"Had it provided details that could have been acted on immediately it would have been, but unfortunately there were no such details in the email". "We will do whatever we can to help them heal and rise above this bad tragedy".

"We we are sending out Pacific music of healing and hope for our Muslim communities in Aotearoa".
