A Syrian father and son are first Christchurch victims to be buried

Christchurch, New Zealand (CNN)Zaid Mustafa should have been at school on Wednesday.

Instead, he was being pushed in a wheelchair to the graves of his father and brother, surrounded by mourning strangers in a country he had only recently made home.
The 13-year-old was shot in the leg last Friday when a gunman opened fire on worshipers at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch, killing 50 people and shocking a nation that thought it could never happen there.
