Nearly 40,000 people turned out for a vigil in Christchurch, New Zealand on Saturday evening, as the country continues to mourn following the killing of 50 people in mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch on March 15. Saturday’s vigil, which included speeches, music, and moments of silence, is the latest in a string of remembrance events that have and will continue to take place around New Zealand. On Saturday the Al-Noor mosque, one of the sites of the violence, was reopened for worship. Several survivors of the shooting returned to pray.
