In New Zealand, thousands of people gathered in Christchurch today to hold a vigil to remember the 50 people killed in a terrorist attack on two mosques.

Officials estimate that up to 40,000 people attended the vigil held at Hagley Park. It included speeches, singing, and moments of silence. The names of the 50 worshippers killed were also read out.

Today’s ceremony was the latest in a series of remembrance events. Yesterday, more than 1,000 people marched in a rally against racism in Auckland, carrying placards reading ‘migrant lives matter’ and ‘refugees welcome here’.
