Muslims with at least 10 different nationalities fell victim to right-wing terror attacks at two mosques in New Zealand's third largest city Christchurch on Friday.

An aircraft engineer, a takeaway store owner, a student pilot; details emerging of some of the 50 people gunned down at two New Zealand mosques paint a picture of dozens of ordinary lives suddenly and savagely ended.

Wearing a white prison suit, Tarrant appeared handcuffed and barefoot. He is due back in court on April 5 and police said he was likely to face further charges.

Friday's attack in the city of Christchurch, which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern labeled terrorism, was the worst ever peacetime mass killing in New Zealand.

He was believed in the Al Noor mosque near Hedley Park at the time of the shootings. No images have emerged from there.

The white supremacist who slaughtered 49 worshipers in two New Zealand mosques was armed to kill even more when police arrested him Friday, officials said.

Within two minutes of its receipt, Ms Ardern said the email - which she confirmed she had read parts of - was forwarded by her office to parliamentary security.

A spokesman said the email did not describe the specific incident and that there was "nothing in the content or timing that would have been able to prevent the attack". The judge said "it was reasonable to assume" more such charges would follow.

Two other people have been arrested in connection with the terror attack, and they remain in custody as police conduct an ongoing investigation as to their possible involvement.

President Donald Trump, who has a record of Islamophobic rhetoric, online behavior and policies, tweeted out his "warmest sympathy and best wishes" to the people of New Zealand.

"We think also of our Cook Islands community in Christchurch and in New Zealand, with so many of our people who have made their homes there".

"Hi guys how are you". She asserted that New Zealand "will not and can not be shaken" by this attack.

'It's been 36 hours, I haven't heard anything about them, ' he said.

Last October, a crowdfunding campaign called "Muslims Unite for Pittsburgh Synagogue" raised more than $200,000 in four days for the Pittsburgh shooting victims.

Victims came from across the Muslim world, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Turkey, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.

The Fijian rugby team also expressed their solidarity with the people of New Zealand after the attacks.

"I'm not sure how to deal with this".

"We understand these procedures take time".

The revelation comes as relatives of those murdered in New Zealand continued to endure an agonising wait for confirmation of the identities of those killed in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Muzzamil Pathan arrived to offer his condolences for a friend, Imran Khan, who was killed at a second mosque in the suburb of Linwood.

On Facebook, a user named Alta Marie said her husband Zulfirman Syah and her son were both shot at the Linwood Mosque.

He used a semi-automatic shotgun as well as a modified semi-automatic rifle as he pummelled victims with multiple bullets.

New Zealand has in the past tried to tighten firearm laws, but a strong gun lobby and culture of hunting has stymied such efforts. Story continues after video.
