Reuters: Hundreds of Bangladeshis came out onto to the streets of Dhaka on Saturday (March 16) to protest the attacks on mosques in New Zealand.  Holding placards and chanting slogans, they called for justice.

The Bangladeshi cricket team, who were in New Zealand for a tour, narrowly escaped the attack, with many of its members just outside the Al Noor mosque when the events unfolded.

The main suspect in mass shootings at two New Zealand mosques, Australian citizen Brenton Harrison Tarrant, was charged with one count of murder when he appeared in a Christchurch District Court earlier in the day. Tarrant remanded without a plea until his next scheduled appearance in the South Island city’s High Court on April 5.
