Suspect In New Zealand Mosque Attack Appears In Court

Suspect In New Zealand Mosque Attack Appears In Court

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

Bodies of the victims have not yet been released to families because police are still working to determine cause of death for each victim.

"But we are so aware of the cultural and religious needs. So we are doing that as quickly and sensitively as possible".

Cook Islands prime minister Herny Puna said his country's prayers first and foremost were with the victims of the shooting, "their families, friends and loved ones whe are now faced with the irreconcilable loss of their loved ones".

His relatives in the Australian town of Grafton, in New South Wales, contacted police after learning of the shooting and were helping with the investigation, local authorities said.

This senseless attack is an affront to the people of Christchurch and New Zealand, and the broader Muslim community.

Footage of the attack on one of the mosques was broadcast live on Facebook, and a "manifesto" was also posted online that denounced immigrants as "invaders".

Two mosques were targeted in the attack. In it, he identified himself as Tarrant and said he was a 28-year-old Australian and white supremacist who was out to avenge attacks in Europe perpetrated by Muslims.

Ardern said 39 survivors remained hospitalized Saturday, with 11 critically wounded.

At least one victim was expected to be returned tonight, he said, and emphasised that "the most important thing is to ensure that identifications are done to 100 per cent certainty". About two dozen men received instructions on their duties Sunday morning, which included Muslim burial customs.

"At just that moment, there was one young guy who usually takes care of the mosque and helps with parking and other stuff, so (the man) saw an opportunity and he pounced over to him and grabbed his gun".

"In the midst of this very bad atrocity this is the hope we can cling to, peace-loving and free people all around the world", he said. "We will do whatever we can to help them heal and rise above this awful tragedy".

Javed Dadabhai, who flew from Auckland after learning about the death of his 35-year-old cousin Junaid Mortara, said the Muslim community was being patient.

Still, it was hard, he said, because the grieving process wouldn't really begin until he could bury his cousin.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has confirmed her office was one of more than 30 recipients of a so-called manifesto written by the accused Christchurch shooter, sent nine minutes before Friday's mosque attacks. - AP Mourners pay their respects at a makeshift memorial near the Masjid Al Noor mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, Saturday, March 16, 2019. "From what we know, it does appear to have been well planned". "50 hearts for 50 lives".

In another tragic case, Mucad Ibrahim, aged three, was last seen alive at the Al Noor mosque with his brother and father.

But the stream, lasting 17 minutes, was shared repeatedly on YouTube and Twitter, and internet platforms were scrambling to remove videos being reposted of the gruesome scenes.

The second attack took place at the Linwood mosque about 5 kilometers (3 miles) away.

Ardern said Tarrant was a licensed gun owner who allegedly used five weapons, including two semi-automatic weapons and two shotguns, which had been modified.
