KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): A Malaysian teenager climbed over the walls of the mosque and ran nearly 1.5km to escape the terrorist attack in Christchurch, New Zealand on Friday (March 15).

Idris Khairudin, 14, had gone to the Al Noor Mosque to perform Friday prayers, but instead of praying inside the mosque as usual, he decided to sit in the back rows of the congregation.
