New Zealand Attack: What We Know 49 People Dead After ‘Terrorist Attack’ At 2 New Zealand Mosques, One Shooting Live-Streamed On Fa

Tarrant was remanded in custody without plea to the high court in Christchurch on 5 April.

Dressed in a white prison tunic, handcuffed and flanked by two police officers, Tarrant stood passively in the dock.

The victim can not be named by order of the court.

He flashed an upside-down "okay" signal, a symbol used by white power groups across the globe.

Meates said at a news conference at the Christchurch hospital that it's "hard to fathom the enormity of this act of terrorism". "Just heard news of the devastating reports from New Zealand Christchurch", he wrote.

However Mr Howard, the architect behind Australia's own changes in gun laws more than 20 years ago, was reluctant to say whether New Zealand should follow suit. Funerals were planned on Saturday for some of the victims, several of whom were born overseas.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern also said New Zealand's systems of firearms, border control, and enhanced information sharing with Australia including watchlist processes would be strengthened.

Christchurch Hospital chief Greg Robertson said on Saturday that many patients will require multiple operations to deal with their complex series of injuries.

The firearms included two semi-automatic rifles, two shotguns and a lever-action weapon, she said, speaking to reporters in Wellington before heading to Christchurch.

Police said three people were in custody.

"I want to reassure all New Zealanders that we are doing absolutely everything in our power to respond to this attack, and deploying all available resources in communities across New Zealand", Bush said. Then he picks up his gun, storms into the mosque, and cuts down one innocent life after another.

Tarrant, the suspect, had posted a jumbled 74-page anti-immigrant manifesto online before the attacks and apparently used a helmet-mounted camera to broadcast live video of the slaughter.

At least 49 people have died, seven at Linwood Masjid Mosque and 41 at Masjid Al Noor Mosque. None of them was known to the authorities. Police are now working to identify any connections between the men found with guns and the terrorist attack.

President of the General Assembly Maria Fernanda Espinosa strongly condemned the terror attacks against two mosques, saying, "This heinous act of extreme violence against a house of worship is an abhorrent crime". "To move forward as a world, we need to recognize diversity as a source of strength, and not a threat".

Last year, New Zealand's prime minister announced that the country would boost its annual refugee quota from 1,000 to 1,500 in 2020.

"New Zealand has never seen an event like this before and NZ Police is dedicating all available resources to our response, not only in Christchurch but right across the country".

Social media was flooded with messages of shock, sympathy, and solidarity. Another showed a pair of figures, one in a headscarf, embracing. "This is your home and you should have been safe here" the caption reads.

The Al Noor mosque sits opposite a grand English-style park filled with towering oak trees. "Whether you're from Palestine, Iraq, Syria - he's been the first person to hold his hand up". This means 144 anti-Mosque incidents occurred.

"Because I was running late I decided not to go", said Khan. "I have to feel my race everyday". "I would not describe him as a long-term resident".

"He had a big gun.He came and started shooting everyone in the mosque, everywhere", said the man, Ahmad Al-Mahmoud.

In the video, the killer spends more than two minutes inside the mosque targeting terrified worshippers with gunfire. At least two Jordanian citizens were killed and five others wounded in the shootings, the country's Foreign Ministry said. When it is over, he climbs back into his vehicle, where he has left his music playing - the song "Fire" by the English rock band The Crazy World of Arthur Brown.
