    Guys

    If you have not already heard, there have been shooting attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, the main city in the South Island. Ten (10) people were killed in one mosque and thirty (30) people in the other mosque. A number of people (adults and children) some with critical injuries, have been taken to hospitals in Christchurch and via airborne transfer to other major centres.

    The Bangladeshi Cricket Team bus had just pulled up to one of the mosques when shooting started. The team members left their bus and escaped through a nearby park. The test game has been cancelled.

    There were four (4) offenders. They are all under arrest. Three men and one woman.
    The main offender was an Australian white supremacist.



    All my family down there are safe. According to one of my aunts there are a lot of frightened children in Christchurch.

    Horrible. RIP. Didn't know there were mosques in NZ.

    Someone in the media will find a way to blame Trump.

    This is just savage. I don't understand how anyone can shoot innocent people like this. How do 4 people get it into their heads to kill families at a place of worship? Such evil.

    I am glad your family are safe @ZG47 . I hope all members here have been spared from this tragedy.

    4 arrested and one charged with murder. These acts of terrorism are inevitable as long as we see the label and not see the person. For these four it was too hard to see the human they shot; the child, the mother, the son, the brother. Instead they only saw a Muslim. Sadly, it takes no intellect to hate a label. It's harder to pay attention to a person, and then to hate that individual. Hate is more seductive than thought.

    Terrible massacre of insane miscarriages.
    It's heating up the cycle of extremists worldwide.
    Getting out of this spiral, how is that supposed to work with such terrible deeds?
    It remains bewilderment and sadness.

    Zealots and Despots can be found world wide even though they are distained by the vast majority. Innocent victims and their families are deserving of our prayers and the culprits of our commendation.
