New Zealanders To Hold Candlelight Vigil

Vigils have been held across New Zealand as the far-flung country gets to grips with a terrorist attack that killed 50 people and injured tens of others

At weekend election rallies Erdogan showed video footage of the shootings, which the gunman had broadcast on Facebook, earning a rebuke from New Zealand's foreign minister who said it could endanger New Zealanders overseas.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan showed video footage at an election rally on Saturday from an attack on two New Zealand mosques, which killed 49 people, and said the suspected gunman had made threats against Turkish Muslims.

On Friday, terrorist Brenton Tarrant, also a self-professed white supremacist, wielding an armoury of semi-automatic rifles scrawled with racist ideology, walked into two mosques and unleashed a rampage that left at least 50 dead and dozens more with life-changing wounds.

Erdogan also displayed extracts from a "manifesto" posted online by the attacker and later taken down.

"All Muslims, our country, our nation and myself are targeted", he told supporters. The Turkish leader then pivoted to assail the leader of Turkey's main opposition CHP party, Kemal Kilicdaroglu, who was shown in the campaign video, for talking about "terrorism rooted in the Islamic world". "Have no doubt we will send you back like your grandfathers". "You will not make Istanbul a Constantinople". Turkey's economy entered a technical recession past year following a crash in the lira that also sent inflation to more than five times the official target of 5 percent. "And it's totally unfair", he said.

"The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) under the leadership of its President-General, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa'ad Abubakar, CFR, mni, strongly condemns this brazen act of terrorism on the defenseless Muslim worshippers in Christchurch".

A senior Turkish security source said Tarrant had entered Turkey twice in 2016 - for a week in March and for more than a month in September. He said Turkish authorities were investigating his visits and his contacts.
