New Zealand mosque gunman livestreamed shooting published manifesto

"It doesn't get any more serious", Bush said.

Asked if the police were searching for any other suspects, he said: "We never assume that there aren't other people involved, that's why we've got an vast presence out there ... but we don't have named or identified people that we are looking for, but it would be wrong to assume that there is no-one else".

It was by far the deadliest shooting in modern New Zealand history. He said he was a 28-year-old white Australian.

When the death toll stood at 40, it was known that 30 people were killed at the Masjid Al Noor mosque in central Christchurch, seven were killed inside the suburban Linwood Masjid Mosque, and three died outside the same mosque.

At least 48 people were wounded, some critically. Two improvised explosive devices found in one auto after the shootings have been defused by police.

Kate was presenting the news programme alongside Charlotte Hawkins, and they were reporting the attack together.

Among them were six Indonesians - three of whom were reported safe, the country´s foreign minister Retno Marsudi said, adding they were searching for the others. During the Saturday morning hearing, a man who was not in court was charged with using writings to incite hatred against a race or ethnicity, but it was not clear if his case was related to the mosque attacks. Investigators say he live streamed one of the shootings on Facebook. Tarrant has spent little time in Australia in the past four years and only had minor traffic infractions on his record. An officer stopped him. As New Zealand has stood by us so we stand shoulder to shoulder with them, and with Muslims in New Zealand, here in the United Kingdom and around the world. He wrote, "I only arrived to New Zealand to live temporarily whilst I planned and trained, but I soon found out that New Zealand was as target rich of an environment as anywhere else in the West".

Imran Khan, Pakistan's prime minister, also expressed his condolences and said he was alarmed by the further rise of Islamophobia.

Police urged all mosques across New Zealand to stay closed over the weekend for security reasons. But it has one of the lowest gun homicide rates in the world.

Ardern promised that, "Our gun laws will change". "New Zealanders can't believe this could happen on our own soil". In other forums, people discussed Muslim food restrictions as they prepared to drop off meals for those affected.

New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described the attack as "one of New Zealand's darkest days".

He said he helped about five people recover in his home.

Death toll from New zealand's Christchurch mosque attacks rises to 49
New Zealand police said at least 49 people were killed Friday at two mosques in the picturesque South Island city of Christchurch. Bush confirmed that a further 20 people were injured in what is now the worst mass shooting in New Zealand history.

The White House also condemned the shootings.

Tarrant, in his rambling manifesto, deemed Trump "a symbol of renewed white identity".

Ardern said 30 people were killed at the Al Noor mosque, the city's main mosque, and another 10 at a mosque in the suburb of Linwood.

Mevlut Cavusoglu, Turkey's foreign minister, also said the attack was a deliberate demonising of Muslim political struggles. Peneha then went into the mosque to help the victims.

"At least 49 people are dead".

"I stand in sympathy and solidarity with the Muslim community in Peterborough". Children's screams can be heard in the distance as he returns to his vehicle to get another rifle. After walking back outside and shooting a woman there, he gets back in his auto and drives away. The singer bellows, "I am the god of hellfire!" and the gunman drives away.

A spokesman for the Faizen e Madina Mosque in Gladstone Street tweeted: "Saddened and shocked by the horrific terrorist attacks on Mosques in #Christchurch".

"Just heard the news".

The footage showed the killer was carrying a shotgun and two fully automatic military assault rifles, with an extra magazine taped to one of the weapons so that he could reload quickly.

"It feeds extremism and terrorism and leads to such brutal terrorist attacks", the statement added. He describes himself in the manifesto as an ethno-nationalist and fascist.

Reports suggest that many of those affected are part of New Zealand's migrant and refugee communities.

Mass shootings in New Zealand are rare.
