Turkey urges end to 'Islamophobic fascist terrorism'

A member of the AOS (Armed Offenders Squad) stands ready following a shooting at the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, on March 15, 2019.

Facebook and YouTube were created to share pictures of babies, puppies and other wholesome things, he said, "but they were expanded at such a scale and built with no safeguards such that they were easy to hijack by the worst elements of humanity".

Police said a total of three people had been arrested in connection with the incident but did not identify those taken into custody and gave no details except to say that none of them had been on any watch list. However, Bush didn't mention the other people.

Bush clarified that police had found two improvised explosive devices in one auto. "They feel as though they're censored and targeted by media companies and by the large technology firms", Patterson said.

"We are very clear in our site terms of service that posting content that incites or glorifies violence will get users and communities banned from Reddit", it said in a statement.

"A man who claimed responsibility for the shootings described anti-immigrant views in a manifesto".

"The content of the video is disturbing and will be harmful to people to see", he said.

At least 49 people were killed in multiple shootings at two Christchurch mosques. From what we know, it does appear to have been well planned.

Four people have been detained, and one is Australian. Seven of the dead were inside the suburban Linwood Masjid Mosque and three died outside the same mosque.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Friday confirmed the attacker at the Masjid al Noor mosque was an Australian. He said Australian authorities were assisting with the investigation.

Some people expressed outrage on Twitter that the videos were still circulating hours after the attack. Yet early reports paint the picture of a right-wing extremist who sought to "remove" non-whites from Europe.

That has proved a popular move with supporters, who believe part of the club's identity involves the promotion of young players. Fifth on the Premier League table, United can also qualify for the FA Cup semi-finals with a win over Wolves on Saturday.

"Just around the entrance door there were elderly people sitting there praying and he just started shooting at them", he told the New Zealand Herald.

"We have seen many times that Islamophobic rhetoric against Islam and Muslims have turned into a perverse and murderous ideology", Kalın said.

The foreign ministry says there are 330 Indonesian citizens in Christchurch, 130 of them students.

Satellite navigational audio could also be heard in the video as the gunman drove to the mosque, which AFP tracked on Google StreetView showing his route for the two kilometres (1.2 miles) leading there.

She said it was "one of New Zealand's darkest days".

The rampage's broadcast "highlights the urgent need for media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter to use more artificial intelligence as well as security teams to spot these events before it's too late", Ives said.

During the same attack on Linwood mosque, another worshipper managed to tackle one of the gunmen and seize his weapon before the terrorists finally fled the scene. A witness to a second shooting told New Zealand media he saw two wounded people being transported by rescuers afterward.

Former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark in televised remarks said social media platforms had been slow to close down hate speech.

"At this tragic time, my thoughts and prayers are with all New Zealanders", she said in her message.

"We would strongly urge that the link not be shared". One victim of the Masjid Al Noor shooting is gaining worldwide attention for the remarkable response he uttered moments before his death.

Police have not described the scale of the Friday shooting but urged people in central Christchurch to stay indoors.
