'Latest example of rising racism and Islamophobia': World leaders react to New Zealand mosque shooti
World leaders expressed condolences and condemnation Friday following the deadly attacks on mosques in New Zealand, while Muslim leaders said the mass shooting was evidence of a rising tide of violent Islamophobia.
In a tweet, U.S. President Donald Trump sent "warmest sympathy and best wishes" to the people of New Zealand.
He wrote "49 innocent people have so senselessly died, with so many more seriously injured. The U.S. stands by New Zealand for anything we can do. God bless all!"
