U.S. markets hold moment of silence for mosque shooting victims

The two New York stock exchanges held a moment of silence on Friday (March 15) to honor victims of a mass shooting at a New Zealand mosque.

The NASDAQ broadcast a message of support to the victims on its screens overlooking Times Square.

A gunman shot dead 49 people and wounded at least 20 at two New Zealand mosques, some as they were kneeling at prayer, livestreaming online some of the killings that Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern condemned as terrorism. It was the worst ever mass killing in New Zealand which raised its security threat level to the highest.
