Thousands gather for Christchurch remembrance

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Thousands gathered in a Christchurch park on Friday (March 29) as the names of 50 people shot dead in two mosques were read out at a national memorial service, with speakers calling for the legacy of the tragedy to be a kinder, more tolerant New Zealand.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who wore a Maori cloak known as a kakahu during the service, said the world had to end the vicious cycle of extremism.

Performers during the ceremony included Yusuf Islam, also known as Cat Stevens, who performed his song "Peace Train." The massacre in Christchurch was carried out by a lone gunman at two mosques.

Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, a suspected white supremacist, has been charged with one count of murder and is likely to face more charges when he reappears in court next Friday (April 5).
