Live updates: Christchurch mosque terror attacks day 7

Live updates: Christchurch mosque terror attacks day 7

As the country continues to mourn those killed in Friday's attacks, more burials and vigils will be taking place today.

Scroll down for live updates in the wake of the attack

The first burials of those killed in the terrorist attack on Friday took place yesterday, with Khaled Mustafa and Hamza Mustafa laid to rest at Memorial Park Cemetery in Linwood, Christchurch.

More are expected today, with the burial of Haji Daoud Nabi at Memorial Park Cemetery to be open to all members of the public.

The burials come as New Zealand and Australian officials sought clarification from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan over inflammatory comments he made following the attacks, including playing footage of the attacks at his political rallies.

Ms Ardern yesterday said deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters would confront Mr Erdogan over the comments when he visits the country. She also announced there would be a two-minute silence to honour the victims on Friday, and the call to prayer would be broadcast on RNZ and TVNZ.
