New Zealand: Son of first named mosque shooting victim speaks outside Christchurch court

Omar Nabi, son of the first person killed in the Christchurch mosque shootings to be publicly identified, spoke to journalists outside the city’s district court on Saturday.

Daoud Nabi, his 71-year-old father, was originally from Afghanistan.

The main suspect, 28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant, appeared in court charged with murder. Further charges are expected to be made against him.

During proceedings both of Daoud Nabi’s sons were outside demanding justice. Omar described the attack as “cowardly.”

A total of 49 people were killed in the shootings, a further 48 were wounded.

The first report of an attack came from Masjid Al Noor Mosque in Christchurch during Friday prayers. The gunman then drove to the nearby Linwood Islamic Centre, where the second shooting occured.

Besides Tarrant, two more individuals have been arrested in connection with the attack.

The identities of many victims have not yet been released.
