Earlier in the day, at least 40 people have been killed and 20 others were in serious condition when gunmen entered two mosques and began shooting in New Zealand's city of Christchurch on Friday.

Bush told a news conference that a man has been charged with murder and will appear in court tomorrow.

In addition, police are aware of a video shared online, and broadcast live during the attack, that purports to show a gunman walking into an unnamed mosque and opening fire. In all, a total of 49 people were killed. In a statement he said: "Our hearts go out to the people of New Zealand following the news of this awful act in Christchurch".

A man who claimed responsibility for the shootings left a 74-page anti-immigrant manifesto in which he explained who he was and his reasoning for the attack.

- New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the national security threat level has been lifted from low to high, adding the shootings appeared to have been a well-planned "terrorist attack".

She added that this was "one of New Zealand's darkest days".

Just 1% of New Zealand's population of nearly five million are Muslim, according to government statistics, less than 50,000 people in 2013.

She also said that four individuals had been "apprehended" by police. The gunman spends more than two minutes inside the mosque spraying terrified worshippers with bullets again and again, sometimes re-firing at people he has already cut down.

All mosques in New Zealand had been asked to shut their doors, police said.

After parking, he took two guns and walked a short distance to the mosque where he opened fire.

The gunman at one mosque was an Australian-born citizen, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said in Sydney, describing him as "an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist".

Bush clarified that police had found two improvised explosive devices in one vehicle.

He describes himself as "a private and mostly introverted person" and admits he is racist, adding that he is an "Eco-fascist by nature".

His manifesto was a welter of often politically contradictory views, touching on numerous most combustible issues of the day, among them the Second Amendment right to own guns, Muslim immigration, terrorist attacks and the wealthiest 1 percent. He said he was not a member of any organisation, but had donated to and interacted with many nationalist groups, though he acted alone and no group ordered the attack. Ardern, whose party campaigned on a promise to take in more refugees, called it "the right thing to do".

The government of New Zealand is treating the incident as a terrorist attack. It is the second most-populous city in New Zealand behind Auckland and Wellington. There will be so many people affected.

The massacres took place from 1.40pm this afternoon at the Masjid Al Noor and Linwood Masjid mosques.
