Countries around the world mourn for Christchurch terror attack victims

Countries from around the world have been hit by the Christchurch shooting tragedy, with Fiji losing one of its most prominent Muslims, and parents and a son from Pakistan killed.

On Monday, Muslims were out in numbers supporting their fallen brothers and sisters.

Travelling from around the world, like the Turkish vice-president, or around the country like these Indo-Fijians from Auckland.

They're out in force because the most respected Islamic leader in Fiji, Haji Musa Patel, was killed on Friday.

He was given the honour of leading the prayer when the gunman entered the building.

Haji Musa Patel was not just a leader or Imam, but what's called a Hasif, he knew the Quran off by heart.

He retired just three weeks ago, and was in New Zealand on holiday visiting his children.

A Fijian man who knew him said he was a "very friendly" man.

"Very nice, very compassionate, a very nice person."

And Fiji was not the only country who met tragedy on Friday.

Pakistan's Ghuam Hussein and "Karima Bubi" were out visting their son "Zeeshan Raza".

All three were among the nine Pakistanis killed, out of only 350 living in Christchurch.

High Commissioner Abdul Malik says they have the highest death count despite the lowest population here.

"Most of the Pakistan community in Christchurch they were very well educated people working in high positions."

The Turkish Vice-President Fuat Oktay is leading from the front laying flowers near one of the scenes in Christchurch.

Families, friends and countries all in mourning.
