A woman who lost her husband and son in the Christchurch mosque shootings told of her heartbreak on Sunday (March 17). Amber Naeem lost her husband Naeem Rashid, who was witnessed on a video of the attacks trying to intercept the gunman at the Al Noor mosque before being shot, as well as her 21 year old son Talha. Their sister-in-law Naema Khan told Australia's Seven Network that the mosque's layout prevented further female deaths, as the gunman did not discover the female prayer room at the Al Noor mosque.
