Old Bridge in Mostar illuminated with the Colors of New Zealand Flag

Organized by the Center for Peace and Multiethnic Cooperation, the Old Bridge in Mostar was illuminated with the colors of the flag of New Zealand on Saturday night.

In this way, tribute was paid to victims of the attack in New Zealand’s Christhurch and sympathy to the citizens of that country.

In Christchurch, New Zealand, an attack on two mosques was carried out on Friday, where 49 people were killed and dozens wounded by Australian terrorist Brenton Tarrant (28).

New Zealand authorities are racing to identify the 50 people killed in a massacre at two mosques so that their families can bury them in accordance with Muslim tradition.

In addition to the people killed in the attack Friday, an additional 50 others were wounded in the shootings, authorities said. Of the injured victims, 34 remain in Christchurch Hospital, including 12 in intensive care.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Sunday that authorities had started returning identified bodies to families, and all bodies will be returned by Wednesday, CNN reports.
