    "We are their voice": NZ parliament tightens guns laws following Christchurch terror attack

    "Supplied video obtained Wednesday, April 10, 2019, of NZ Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern speaking in parliament during the third reading of the Arms (prohibited firearms, magazines, and parts) Amendment Bill. The bill will amend gun legislation to ban all military-style semi-automatic rifles, high capacity magazines, and dangerous modifications, in the hope of preventing another terror attack like the one that killed 50 people in Christchurch last month. "Mr speaker we are ultimately here because 50 people died and they do not have a voice. We in this house are their voice, and today Mr speaker we have used that voice wisely," Ardern says. (AAP VIDEO/Supplied/Parliament TV)"

    Four-year-old victim of Christchurch mosque shooting suffering brain damage


    Four-year-old victim of Christchurch mosque shooting suffering brain damage

    Apr 12 2019

    "A young girl who was shot in the Christchurch terror attacks has sustained brain damage and doesn't recognise her parents, her father says.

    Four-year-old Alen Daraghmih is in Auckland's Starship children's hospital, conscious, but not responding. ...

    "To be honest, it's in the last couple of days I've come to understand the situation. We're very hurt," an emotional Alsati said from his hospital bed on Thursday night.

    "She's awake, but she's not responding. She can't see. Her hands and her legs are slightly moving, but not the way she wants them to."

    Daraghmih has undergone eight surgeries, but it will be six months before doctors know how bad the damage is, Alsati said.

    Meanwhile, Alsati is battling his own medical issues, having undergone several surgeries at Christchurch Hospital before being transferred to Auckland on March 17.

    He was shot three times in the attack, and says he has "heaps of fragments of bullets" left in his body, some of which won't be removable until a later date.

    Being able to walk again is a minimum of 18 months away, he's been told.

    "On Monday they took half a bullet from my tummy, it was about a big nail size. They did that surgery while I was awake," Alsati said."

    ***************
    video message from Alsati, "Keep praying for us."

    Gosh, this is utterly heartbreaking. Have been wondering about her recovery. Her poor parents.

    Ughh. I know.
    I was so wanting a positive update regarding little
    Daraghmih. She is so precious.
    But it's early days of recovery … and you never know …
    just keep hoping and praying and send out the love vibes to NZ to her and her family.

    Photo of Christchurch mosque shooting victim Alen Alsati shows 4-year-old with family in hospital

    Photo of Christchurch mosque shooting victim Alen Alsati shows 4-year-old with family in hospital

    12 Apr, 2019

    "The first photo of a 4-year-old girl who survived the Christchurch mosque shootings has emerged since she awoke from a coma.

    The picture captures Alen Alsati recovering in Auckland's Starship Hospital, surrounded by family.

    Alen sustained critical injuries when she was shot at the Al Noor mosque on March 15.

    She woke from a coma earlier this week after undergoing multiple surgeries.

    Her critical injuries include brain damage - but it could be up to six months before doctors can determine what this will mean for Alen in the long term. ...

    Despite suffering brain damage, the Givealittle page states that Alen is making daily progress, but cannot currently speak or see people.

    "She has begun to say the odd word and recognises her mother's voice," he said."

    Alen's story just breaks my heart, how anyone can hurt tiny children is just beyond me. At least she can hear her mummy's voice now though, hopefully that will help with her emotional recovery.

    'Scared' Muslims avoid Christchurch mosques a month after attacks

    'Scared' Muslims avoid Christchurch mosques a month after attacks

    Four weeks on from the New Zealand mosques massacre, the Christchurch Muslim community was struggling to get worshippers to overcome their fears and return to Friday prayers.

    12 Apr 2019

    "They are still very scared," Linwood mosque Imam Ibrahim Abdelhalim told AFP. "Normally we would expect around 100, but now it's about 30." …

    Abdelhalim said many Muslims who wanted to return to the mosques "are having flashbacks and that's not good".

    New Zealand police have issued a statement saying the national threat level "remains high" a month after the slaughter, even though the gunman is thought to have acted alone."

    Christchurch terror attack: The day NZ changed forever

    Christchurch terror attack: The day NZ changed forever
    From Checkpoint, 6:15 pm on 15 April 2019

    "Documentary - One month ago today, Christchurch was hit by the worst modern day act of terror that this country has seen. Fifty people were killed in attacks on two mosques in the city. Dozens of others were injured.

    The shootings of March 15 are still keenly affecting those caught up in them.

    Some people are still in hospital with life threatening injuries, their loved ones scared to be at home or in Christchurch at all. Money and day-to-day living is also becoming a struggle. Others are grappling with their mental health.

    Tonight we share with you their stories over the past month, narrated by our reporter Logan Church and videographer Simon Rogers, who were some of the first journalists at the Al Noor Mosque on Deans Avenue, arriving just minutes after the shooting.

    This is their story, in their words and the words of the survivors and those grieving the lost, on one of our darkest days."

    A grassroots campaign to erect a massive mural of the New Zealand Prime Minister in an inner city suburb of Melbourne has raised over $11,000 in a single day.

    The crowdfunded campaign to pay for renowned street artist Loretta Lizzio to paint the 23 metres Tinning Street Silo, which towers over the skyline in Brunswick, Melbourne, received support from residents, the local council and numerous businesses.

    The image to be painted on the silos is Ms Ardern as she appeared in the days after the Christchurch terrorist attack — her hair covered by a black scarf — as she visited mosques and attended to grieving friends and family members in the wake of the shooting.

    Turkish man wounded in Christchurch mosque attacks dies - report

    Turkish man wounded in Christchurch mosque attacks dies - report
    May 2 2019

    "We have unfortunately lost our citizen Zekeriya Tuyan, who was critically wounded in the treacherous attack in Christchurch," Foreign Minister minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Twitter on Thursday.

    The death is being reported on Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agency and other agencies. RNZ is seeking to confirm the report.

    The death would raise the toll from the attacks to 51.

    Mr Tuyan's brother told Anadolu that his injured relative was been taken to surgery on Thursday, but he could not be saved.

    "He had surgery today, they couldn't stop the bleeding so we lost him. We were happy because we thought it was going well, he had been battling for 50 days," Yahya Tuyan said, according to Anadolu.

    Mr Tuyan was one of three Turkish citizens wounded in the 15 March attacks, AP reports."
