New Zealand students perform Haka in tribute to shooting victims

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Students from various schools in Christchurch paid their respects on Monday (March 18) to victims of the New Zealand mosque attack by performing a Haka.

Students laid flowers and held a moment of silence before starting the ceremonial Maori dance to mourn the victims and honour the dead.

At least 50 people have died at two mosques, as authorities prepared to begin releasing the bodies of the victims to their families.

Friday's (March 15) attack in the city of Christchurch, which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has labelled as terrorism, was the worst ever peacetime mass killing in New Zealand.
