The first funerals have taken place of victims of the Christchurch terror attack. These were of father and son from Syria.

Khaled Mustafa, 44, and Hamza, 16, arrived with their family as refugees to New Zealand last year.

Hundreds of mourners gathered at a cemetery near the Linwood Islamic Centre in Christchurch, one of two places of worship targeted last Friday.

Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, has been charged with murder.

Islamic tradition calls for bodies to be buried as soon as possible, but the burials have been delayed by the scale of the identification process.
