The propaganda of Islamophobia led to massacres in New Zealand, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, Trend reports March 15 with reference to the Turkish media.
Erdogan noted that Islamophobia is a cancer of our time.
“I condemn the terror attack committed in mosques in New Zealand,” Erdogan said.
At least 49 people have been killed, and 20 seriously injured, after gunmen opened fire at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch on March 15.
New Zealand police say they have arrested three men and one woman. An account believed to belong to one of the attackers featured a link to an 87-page manifesto filled with anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim ideas.
