Istanbul will never become Constantinople - Erdogan Turkey 15:57

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan attends a ceremony marking the 104th anniversary of Battle of Canakkale, also known as the Gallipoli Campaign, in Canakkale, Turkey March 18, 2019.

New Zealand authorities said on Sunday that 34 people remain in hospital, being treated for injuries that Doctor Greg Robertson described ranging from severe, complex gunshot wounds to "relatively superficial soft tissue injuries".

The attack on two mosques in Christchurch killed 50 people.

The delegation from Turkey, a Muslim-majority country, has arrived to show their support to Muslims, she said.

"Your grandparents came here. and they returned in caskets", he said. Erdogan's decision to project footage from the attack - posted by Tarrant on Facebook - on large screens during his speeches, drew a rebuke from New Zealand's Foreign Minister Winston Peters.

"Anything of that nature that misrepresents this country, given that this was a non-New Zealand citizen, imperils the future and safety of the New Zealand people and our people overseas, and that is totally unfair", Peters said. "Do not doubt that you will have the same fate as your grandparents".

Turkish relations with New Zealand have generally been good, strengthened by Gallipoli commemorations which emphasize shared sacrifices in battle as much as the confrontation itself.

"The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) under the leadership of its President-General, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa'ad Abubakar, CFR, mni, strongly condemns this brazen act of terrorism on the defenseless Muslim worshippers in Christchurch".

Tarrant twice visited Turkey for a total of 43 days in 2016, Erdogan said, vowing to "uncover the connection soon".
