Trump condemns terrorist attack on worshipers in New Zealand mosques

Washington, Mar 15 (UNI) US President Donald Trump on Friday condemned the "horrible massacre" at two mosques in New Zealand, in what the White House described as a "vicious act of hate."
"My warmest sympathy and best wishes goes out to the people of New Zealand after the horrible massacre in the Mosques. 49 innocent people have so senselessly died, with so many more seriously injured. The US stands by New Zealand for anything we can do," Trump tweeted.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders also said in a statement that the US strongly condemned the attack.
"The United States strongly condemns the attack in Christchurch. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. We stand in solidarity with the people of New Zealand and their government against this vicious act of hate," Sanders said.
Earlier today, an extremist gunman targeted worshipers attending Friday prayers in Christchurch, New Zealand, killing 49 people, according to the latest report by the country's police. A 28-year-old man has been charged with murder and is due to appear in the Christchurch District Court on Saturday morning. Three others are in custody, but one of these people is not thought to be connected to shootings. But police warned that there could be more offenders.
