Former Pacific Media Watch project reporter Rahul Bhattarai has talked to the South African independent news service eNews Channel Africa News about last Friday’s mosque massacre in New Zealand.

The Johannesburg host talked to him by Skype for an update on “how New Zealand is coping” in the wake of the attack by a white supremacist gunman on worshippers at two mosques in Christchurch a week ago today, leaving 50 people dead.
