A father and son who fled the civil war in Syria for "the safest country in the world" were buried before hundreds of mourners Wednesday, the first funerals for victims of shootings at two mosques in New Zealand that horrified a nation known for being welcoming and diverse. The teen was a student at Cashmere High School and was compassionate and hard-working, according to the principal, who added the youngster was an excellent horse rider who aspired to be a veterinarian. Hamza's younger brother, Zaed, 13, suffered gunshot wounds to the leg in the attack and was seen being pushed around in a wheelchair during Wednesday's burial ceremony. Hundreds of people are at the services in Christchurch. Authorities spent four days constructing a special grave at a city cemetery that is designated for the Muslim burials. An Australian white supremacist killed 50 worshippers in two mosques last Friday. Four other victims: Junaid Ismail, Ashraf Ali, Liluk Abdul Hamid and another victim, whose identity has been suppressed by court order, were also buried with Islamic rites at the Memorial Park Cemetery Wednesday.

A father and son both wrapped in white. These are the first of fifty victims to be buried after New Zealand's deadly shooting. On Wednesday (March 20), the two were carried in open caskets on the shoulder of mourners to their freshly dug graves in a Christchurch cemetary, and laid to face Mecca. Heavily armed police stood watch but with flowers tucked into their revolver holsters and rifles. In Islam, bodies are usually buried within 24 hours, but there have been delays as police continue their investigation into Friday's events. New Zealand's worst mass shooting has been called a terror attack by New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. She visited a Christchurch high school on Wednesday, where two boys had been killed in the attack.
