NZ to hold national remembrance service

Published

on

CHRISTCHURCH: PM’s Office has announced that New Zealand would hold a national remembrance service on 29th March for the victims of two mosques’ massacre and their families, the PMs office announced on Sunday.
The interfaith service will take place in Christchurch two weeks after an Australian white supremacist shot and killed 50 Muslims who had arrived for Friday prayers at two mosques in the city on March 15.
“The national remembrance service provides an opportunity for Cantabrians (Christchurch-area residents), New Zealanders and people all around the world to come together as one to honour the victims of the terrorist attack,” Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said in a statement.
“In the week since the unprecedented terror attack there has been an outpouring of grief and love in our country.
“The service will be a chance to once again show that New Zealanders are compassionate, inclusive and diverse, and that we will protect those values.”
The slaughter has rocked the normally laid-back country and prompted horror worldwide, heightened by the gunman’s cold-blooded livestreaming of the massacre.
Since then, New Zealanders have responded with an outpouring of support for the country’s small Muslim community.
The attack also left dozens of people injured, some critically.
Brenton Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian, was arrested within minutes of the massacre and has been charged with murder.
