Christchurch terror attack: Where you can pay your respects

Kiwis can pay their respects to the victims of Christchurch's horrific terror attack at a number of vigils being held around the country.

So far, communities have rallied together raising more than $8 million families of the 50 people who died and more who were injured following the attack on Friday through a Givealittle page and a Launchgood page.

On Friday, the nation will pay its respects with two minutes silence to be observed around New Zealand.
