Colin

ousef bin Ahmad Al-Othaimeen, the Secretary Gener of the Or

  anization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), condemned the attacks. The OIC represents 57 nations with large or majority-Muslim populations.

  ”The brutal crime had shocked and hurt the feelings of all Muslims around the world, and served

as a further warning on the obvious dangers of hate, intolerance, and Islamophobia,” he said. Otha

imeen urged the New Zealand authorities to investigate the attack thoroughly.

  Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, tweeted his condolences to the victims of the attack,

and confirmed that there will be “highly visible” and armed police around mosques in the UK capital on Friday.

  ”I want to reassure the Muslim communities in London. I have been in touch with the Met Police. There will be highly v

isible policing around mosques today, as well as armed response officers, as Londoners go to pray,” he said.
