Muslims across New Zealand gathered for the first Friday prayers since last week's terror attacks on two Christchurch mosques - but also gathering were thousands of their fellow New Zealanders wanting to show support.
As the call to prayer rang out at mosques around the country, it was also broadcast on RNZ and TVNZ, followed by two minutes of silence to mark one week since the shootings.
The silence was observed by the thousands who gathered at Hagley Park in Christchurch, opposite the Masjid Al Noor, as well as at gatherings at Parliament and at other mosques around the country.
