Chicago Muslim groups step up security after New Zealand mosque attacks

An eyewitness of one of two Christchurch, New Zealand, mosque shootings says he escaped through the side door as the gunman opened fire.

They include a 28-year-old man who was charged with murder and was due to appear in court Saturday.

It follows the shootings of people attending two mosques in Christchurch.

Doctors at Christchurch hospital said they worked through the night in 12 operating theatres to do what they could to save the survivors.

Actress Mia Farrow replied: "The hatred you stoke against Muslims, against immigrants, against the press, against 'others"- your reluctance to condemn white supremacy and your utter lack of moral leadership, leads to the horrors New Zealand is now enduring.

"We are a Forum family and what affects one, affects all. The people of New Zealand are in our thoughts and prayers".

"You may have chosen us", Ardern said, addressing the suspect.

Before Friday's attack, New Zealand's deadliest shooting in modern history took place in 1990 in the small town of Aramoana, where a gunman killed 13 people following a dispute with a neighbour.

Ardern said she had asked authorities to look into whether there was any activity on social media or elsewhere ahead of the attack that should have triggered a response.

"We want our Muslim family members, friends and neighbors to know that we'll do everything possible to keep you safe and secure in the city we share", the police department said in a statement.
