Travellers in Australia fall silent for New Zealand mosque victims

Travellers in an Australian airport lounge observe two minutes of silence for the victims and families of last week's terrorist attack in New Zealand.

The filmer wrote: "A two minute silence held in New Zealand for the victims and families of the Christchurch mass shooting transcended borders to a small airport lounge in Sydney, Australia." The Islamic call to prayer and the two minutes of silence were broadcast live on New Zealand national television.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern joined thousands of mourners near the Al-Noor mosque, one of two places of worship targeted in last Friday's shootings.

Fifty people were killed and dozens more wounded in the attacks.

Australian Brenton Tarrant, a self-proclaimed white supremacist, has been charged with one murder and is expected to face further charges.
