STORYLINE:

49 people were killed and twenty seriously injured in attacks on two mosques in Chistchurch, New Zealand.

The UN Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric told reporters in New York Friday (15 Mar) that the Secretary-General “extends his deepest condolences to the families of the victims and to the Government and the people of New Zealand” and he also “recalls the sanctity of mosques and all places of worship.”

In a statement read by Dujarric, the Secretary-General “calls on all people on this holy day for Muslims to show the signs of solidarity with the bereaved Islamic community.”

“The Secretary-General reiterates the urgency of working better together globally to counter Islamophobia and eliminate intolerance and violent extremism in all its forms” – read Dujarric.

In the meantime, in Geneva, while delivering her remarks on countering of rising nationalist populism and extreme supremacist ideologies, at the 40th session of the Human Rights Council, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet said “the murderous Islamophobic and terrorist attack, just hours ago, on two mosques in New Zealand is yet another terrible reminder that racism kills.”

She also said “now and on March 21, International Day for the elimination of racial discrimination, we renew our promise to the world's people that we stand with the victims, in their grief and their demand for justice; and that we will struggle – every day of every year – against all forms of racism.”
