Interfaith allies are pledging to stand with Muslims in words and actions after the Christchurch massacre.
Interfaith allies expressed grief and solidarity with Muslims on Friday in response to a deadly terror attack at two New Zealand mosques.
The shootings at the Al Noor and Linwood mosques in Christchurch, which occurred during traditional Friday prayer services, left at least 49 people dead and injured dozens more. Local authorities have arrested and charged one man with murder and are holding at least two other suspects in custody in relation to the attacks, the Associated Press reports.
One of the alleged gunmen posted a 74-page manifesto identifying himself as a white nationalist, according to The New York Times. He also live-streamed video of the carnage online.
Leaders from New Zealand’s various religious traditions condemned the attack and expressed outrage that houses of worship were violated in this way.
