Hero Mosque Worker Grabs NZ Attacker’s Gun

Sky News:-  An unidentified man wrestled a gun from the hands of the man involved in the terror attack in New Zealand and prevented further deaths, according to witnesses.

Hours after dozens of people were shot dead at two mosques in Christchurch, witnesses described how a young mosque worker risked his life as he tried to apprehend the gunman.

Survivor Syed Mazharuddin told the New Zealand Herald that he was praying with about 60 to 70 people at the Linwood mosque when he heard gunshots.

People began screaming and he “tried to take cover” as the attacker came through the entrance, he said.

“Just around the entrance door there were elderly people sitting there praying and he just started shooting at them.”

Mr Mazharuddin said the gunman was wearing body armour and shooting indiscriminately.
