New Zealand (NZ) police confirmed that 49 people were killed and 20 wounded in shootings on two mosques in Christchurch, the largest city in the country’s South Island, the Beta news agency reported on Friday.

The Bosnian ambassador to New Zealand Mirza Hajric said that in a live video of the attack a Serbia nationalist song could be heard.

 “What especially worries us from Bosnia is that the killer was a white male and born in Australia and that during the live recording which was posted on social media, on his way towards the mosques where he committed the massacre, he listened to Chetnik songs, songs of Serbian nationalists which mention Radovan Karadzic, who should lead Serbs and who is not afraid of anyone, and it mentions that Ustashas and Turks need to be killed,” Hajric told N1.

Serbia's President Aleksandar Vucic sent his condolences to New Zealand’s General Governor Patsy Reddy following the attack on the mosques in Christchurch, adding ‘this tragedy sends a strong message to the world that we all must be united facing the challenges and cruelty of the terrorists.”

 The Associated Press agency reported that the Australian man claimed responsibility, saying he purposely went to New Zealand to plan and carry out the attack.

The police arrested four people, including an Australian extremist and discovered several explosive devices.

 Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison confirmed the report on an unidentified Australian man arrest, adding “an extreme right-wing terrorist did it.”

So what?? Him listening to chetnik music has nothing to do with serbs och chetniks of the second world war. Him listening to traditional turkish music would not mean that traditional turkish music is extreme. Hilter who liked van gogh and other famous painters would not necessary mean that the art which he liked was right winged. This psychopath has nothing to do with chetniks or Serbia. All serbs are sending their condolences to the people who where killed. May their souls rest in peace.
