A 95-year-old pensioner jumped on four buses to show his support for the Muslim community and march against racism in New Zealand.
John Sato told Radio New Zealand he couldnt sleep after hearing about the Christchurch shooting, where a lone gunman killed 50 people dead.
Sato, one of only two Kiwi-Japanese servicemen in the New Zealand army during the Second World War, can be seen in pictures being supported by a police officer and a helper.
He told the radio station: I stayed awake quite a lot of the night and I didnt sleep to well ever since, you know. I thought it was sad. You can feel the suffering of other people.

I think it is such a tragedy and, yet it has the other side. It has put people together.
It doesnt matter what their race or anything. People have suddenly realised we are all one. We care for each other.
After the terror attack on March 15, Sato visited a mosque near his home to show support.
