A solemn atmosphere turned to relief as 65-year-old Rokiah Mohammad received news that her son, Rahimi Ahmad, who was involved in the Christchurch shooting in New Zealand, is safe for now.

39-year-old Rahimi from Kampung Binjai was among those who were attacked when performing their prayers at the Al Noor Mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand on Friday.

Bayan Lepas assemblyman Azrul Mahathir Aziz said Rahimi's operation to remove the bullet which hit his stomach was a success but added that the 39-year-old would need to undergo another surgery on Saturday.
