Christchurch attacker meant to continue rampage when arrested, says PM

Brenton Tarrant- Christchurch Shooter Appears In Court

A man suspected of at least one of two mass shootings at mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, made a brief appearance in court on Saturday. Tarrant is scheduled to appear before the court on 5 April 2019.

People wait outside a mosque in central Christchurch, New Zealand, on Friday after mass shootings in two locations. Worshippers, possibly dead or wounded, lay on the floor, the video showed.

Police presence in Christchurch and around the country was heightened while families arrived to streets near the mosques with tributes for the victims.

"We are happy and grateful that the police are taking preventative steps, proactively coming forward to help us ... it's more of a reassurance to the community that we're looking forward". No images have emerged from the second mosque.

The prime minister continued by adding that the charged individual was in custody 36 minutes after the police received the first call about the incident.

It is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack.

Facebook said it had deleted the gunman's accounts "shortly after the livestream commenced" after being alerted by police.

Players and members of the team's coaching staff were reportedly on their bus, approaching the Masjid Al Noor mosque in Hagley Park when the shooting broke out. Two other people were in custody and police said they were seeking to understand whether they were involved in any way.

"They were not on any watchlists either here or in Australia", she said. Children are among the 48 people being treated for gunshot wounds. Eleven people remained in intensive care, hospital authorities said. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.

"It's been a pleasure to know you all guys".

Of the four people police apprehended on Friday, one was released ― an innocent bystander who "was just trying to get their kids home", Bush said.

Pacific Islands Forum Chair and president of Nauru Baron Waqa expressed his "deepest condolences" to the people and government of New Zealand on what he called a sad day for Christchurch and a sad day for the region.

In New Zealand, police officers don't routinely carry firearms. "I'm not sure how to deal with this".

In 1979, Haji Daoud Nabi escaped the Soviet-Afghan war and took his young family to safety in New Zealand.

Meates said at a news conference at the Christchurch hospital that it's "hard to fathom the enormity of this act of terrorism".

Rashid, who was originally from Abbottabad in Pakistan, worked for a bank there before moving to New Zealand to work as a teacher.

Before Friday's shootings in the city of Christchurch, the deadliest attack in the South Pacific country was in 1990, when a person went on a shooting spree in the seaside town of Aramoana that left 13 people dead. "The refugee issue and multiculturalism have become politicized and securitized in ways we haven't seen before", says Khalil.

Many people were responding to the targettng of Muslims in a place of worship and the contents of a manifesto linked to the man who has been charged with the attack, that contained white-supremacist and anti-immigrant opinions.

Ms Ardern has vowed to change New Zealand's gun laws after confirming Tarrant had obtained a Category A gun licence in November 2017 and "under that, he was able to acquire the guns that he held". "FM Shah Mahmood Qureshi has condemned in the strongest terms the tragic terrorist attack in Christchurch, New Zealand". Tarrant did not apply for bail, and per ABC News reports, did not apply to have his name suppressed. The AR-15 is a semi-automatic version of the United States military M16 rifle.

She did not offer too much detail, but said a ban on semi-automatic weapons would be looked at. Versions of the video reportedly persisted on the sites for hours after the shootings.

Many on social media reacts with disgust at the mosque attacks questioning what will be the reaction of the whole world if the shooting is done by some Muslims. "It was his intention to continue his attack", the prime minister said. "1.3 billion Muslims have collectively been blamed for any act of terror".
