New Zealand attacks revive 'painful' memories for Norway: PM

At least forty-nine people were killed and more than 20 seriously wounded Friday in shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Video footage widely circulated on social media, apparently taken by the gunman, showed him driving to one mosque entering it and shooting at people at random.

Taking to Twitter to express his distaste, Kjellberg wrote, "Just heard news of the devastating reports from New Zealand Christchurch. My heart and thoughts go out to the victims, families and everyone affected by this tragedy".

The suspect, who reportedly identified himself a 28-year-old Australian man named Brenton Tarrant, said on a chilling livestream of the massacre, "Remember lads, subscribe to Pewdiepie", in reference to the hugely popular, but controversial, YouTuber.

The shooter live streamed the horrific massacre inside one of the mosques on Facebook Live. The shooter also released a 74-page manifesto, titled "The Great Replacement", online before the shooting.

Choe, who attended the February 27-28 talks in Hanoi, said Kim was puzzled by what she called the "eccentric" negotiation position of the U.S.

The streets of Christchurch were in lockdown on Friday, March 15, after mosque attacks earlier in the day which left at least 49 dead and 20 seriously wounded. In addition, 48 people have been injured and are now being treated at a Christchurch hospital.

Two other people arrested are yet to be charged.

The group "Muslims in New Zealand" said it was "overwhelmed" with messages of support in a Tweet.

The police commissioner would not confirm the shooter's name is Brenton Tarrant during the press conference. "We got scared, we asked ourselves what was happening", Sapkota said.

New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called the shooting a "terrorist attack" and one of the country's darkest days. It has no place in New Zealand.
