Many dead in New Zealand shooting at two mosques during Friday prayers

Former NSW personal trainer Brenton Harrison Tarrant, 28, appeared in a Christchurch court on Saturday where he was formally charged with one count of murder.

In 1990, a man killed 13 people in a massacre, using two military-style semi-automatic firearms, which led to new restrictions on that type of gun but not an outright ban.

Many of you will have seen that Air New Zealand has cancelled all turboprop flights out of Christchurch tonight and will review the situation in the morning.

Asked by a reporter on Friday if he sees an increase globally in the threat of white nationalism, the U.S. president responded: "I don't really".

Radio New Zealand quoted a witness inside the mosque saying he heard shots fired and at least four people were lying on the ground and "there was blood everywhere".

They tweeted: "A complex investigation is underway into this bad attack, and Police have a number of a priorities today in terms of investigation and intelligence gathering".

It said Conservatives stand with Muslims around the world to "reaffirm our commitment to building a world where every people, of every faith, can live in freedom and peace together".

There are people who I would describe as having extremist views that have absolutely no place in New Zealand and in fact have no place in the world.

Calgary police said the service works closely with other law enforcement agencies to share information and that at this point, "there are no known threats to mosques in Calgary as a result of the attacks in Christchurch, NZ".

Alberta Party leader Stephen Mandel tweeted that the tragedy in Christchurch "reminds us that even in the most peaceful places, anger, hate and bigotry still exist".

One man who said he was at the Al Noor mosque told media the gunman was white, blond and wearing a helmet and a bulletproof vest. The man burst into the mosque as worshippers were kneeling for prayers.

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

According to Ardern, 41 people were killed at one mosque, seven were killed at the second mosque and one person died in the hospital.

The Bangladesh cricket team was arriving for Friday prayers when the shooting occurred but all members were safe, a team coach told Reuters.

Muslims account for just over 1 percent of New Zealand's population, a 2013 census showed, most of whom were born overseas. Genuis initially rejected calls to follow suit, calling it a talk on human rights, and accused Sgro on social media of retreating only after she remembered this is an election year. Another showed a pair of figures, one in a headscarf, embracing.
