Erdogan says New Zealand suspect targeted Turkey

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan attends a ceremony marking the 104th anniversary of Battle of Canakkale, also known as the Gallipoli Campaign, in Canakkale, Turkey March 18, 2019.

"We are here to show Muslims are able to respond to them with a smart attitude", he added.

Missing from most news media coverage about Erdogan's controversial use of the New Zealand attack footage at campaign rallies is that in at least one event the Turkish strongman screened a version of the video that first zeroes in on a tweet from Yair Netanyahu about Istanbul while serious music is playing in the background.

Last Friday, New Zealand was rocked by two consecutive terrorist mass shootings at Al Noor Mosque and the Linwood Islamic Center in Christchurch, the largest city on the South Island.

"This isn't an individual act, this is organised".

Interviewed on Turkey's Haberturk television on Thursday, Erdogan said Benjamin Netanyahu was "walking around with this stain" of corruption.

"We do not want to see a cross and crescent conflict again", Erdogan said in a reference to Christians and Muslims.

Security beefed up in Australia following New Zealand attack
I mean, you're killing people. "Our hearts are breaking for your loss", read one of the notes marked with a string of x-kisses. Christchurch is a city of about 400,000 residents, still recovering from a massive quake in 2011 that killed 187 people.

On Friday, Erdogan said the suspected gunman had "targeted our country, our nation and myself".

He talked nonsense by saying "we will kill you if you cross west of the Strait, we will come to Istanbul and destroy all the mosques and minarets" in his manifesto that he left.

Turkish authorities have begun investigating everything from hotel records to camera footage to try to ascertain the reason for his visits, the source said.

According to BBC News, he went on: 'Anything of that nature that misrepresents this country - given that [the suspect] was a non-New Zealand citizen - imperils the future and safety of the New Zealand people and our people overseas and it's totally unfair. Peters, speaking to reporters Monday after a weekly cabinet meeting, said that he had raised Erdogan's use of the footage with an official Turkish delegation visiting New Zealand.

Turkey is already probing to establish Tarrant's movements in Turkey during his stay between March 17-20 and September 13 to October 25 in 2016, a senior Turkish official tells TRT World.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has said 40 people were killed in the attack on two mosques.
