Hundreds of people attended the funeral of Syed Areeb Ahmed, a 27-year old victim of the Christchurch massacre, in Karachi on Monday. Areeb's mortal remains arrived in his hometown just three hours before the ceremony.

A total of 50 people were killed in the shootings and a further 50 were wounded in what is New Zealand's worst attack.

The first report of an attack came from Masjid Al Noor Mosque in Christchurch during Friday prayers. The gunman then drove to the nearby Linwood Islamic Centre, where the second shooting occurred.
