Funerals Begin For New Zealand Mosque Shootings Victims

According to Reuters, New Zealand began to bury its dead on Saturday, a day after at least one gunman attacked worshippers in two mosques, killing 49 and injuring 42 others.

The gunman broadcast footage of the attack on one mosque in the city of Christchurch on social media.

Dozens of people laid flowers at cordons near both locations in the South Island city, which is still rebuilding after a devastating earthquake in 2011.
