The UN Secretary-General António Guterres has urged the international community to ‘stand united against anti-Muslim hatred’ following a mass shooting in New Zealand on Friday targeting two mosques, which has left at least 49 dead and many others wounded, some critically.
“Today and every day, we must stand united against anti-Muslim hatred, and all forms of bigotry and terror”, he stressed.
Two other men and one woman were also reportedly detained in connection with the terror attacks, although one was subsequently released.
