The Christchurch terrorist attack has become the deadliest mass shooting in modern New Zealand history.
In what Prime Minister Jacinda Arden has called “one of New Zealand’s darkest days”, a white supremacist opened fire at the Masjid Al Noor mosque where hundreds of men, women and children were gathering for their Friday afternoon prayer.
On Monday morning, the death toll from the attacks was reported by authorities as 50, with a further 50 people left injured.
Now, as the world begins to come to grips with the horrific events of Friday afternoon, the survivors of the attack have begun to share their stories.
