Turkey's Erdogan Strongly Condemns New Zealand Attacks

President Erdogan calls twin mosque attacks 'deplorable act', 'latest example of rising racism and Islamophobia'

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan strongly condemned two deadly mosque shootings in New Zealand on Friday.

"I strongly condemn the terror attack against the Al Noor Mosque in #NewZealand and Muslim worshippers," Erdogan said on Twitter.

Erdogan wished God's mercy upon the victims of the shooting and a speedy recovery to the wounded.

"On behalf of my country, I offer my condolences to the Islamic world and the people of New Zealand, who have been targeted by this deplorable act -- the latest example of rising racism and Islamophobia," he said.

At least 40 people were reportedly killed in twin attacks at two mosques in Christchurch, according to Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern.

New Zealand Police earlier reported that at least four people were taken into custody after the armed attacks. -
