Christchurch Shooting: This is How Barack Obama Reacted to the Attack That Left 49 Dead

Former US President Barack Obama extended his condolences to the people of New Zealand following a shooting in two mosques in Christchurch.

“Michelle and I extend our condolences to the people of New Zealand. We are crying with you and the Muslim community. We must all oppose hatred in all its forms, “tweeted Barack Obama.

 

The shooting in Christchurch took place as hundreds of people were praying in one of the mosques, and an eyewitness said he saw a man dressed in black enter the Masjid Al Noor mosque and a few minutes later he heard dozens of shots.

“I saw dead everywhere,” said the witness.

Four people were arrested according to the police. One of them, in her thirties, has been charged with murder. He appeared in court in Christchurch on Saturday. Originally from Australia, he was allegedly motivated by white supremacy and extremism in the United States to commit these murders.
