New Zealand has opened the Al-Noor mosque for the worshippers after the deadly attack that claimed the lives of 50 people.

The building had closed so police could investigate the attack but on Saturday small groups were allowed to return.

As the Al Noor mosque reopened, some 3,000 people walked through Christchurch on Saturday for a 'march for love' intended to honour victims.

Many walked in silence and some carried placards calling for peace and opposing racism.

"We feel like hate has brought a lot of darkness at times," said Manaia Butler, a 16-year-old student who helped to organise the march. "Love is the strongest cure to light the city out of that darkness," she said.
