Death Toll Rises To 50 In New Zealand Mosque Attacks

Chicago Muslim groups step up security after New Zealand mosque attacks

A total of 49 people were killed and at least 48 were wounded in two shootings at a pair of mosques in Christchurch.

"The police don't have a clue how many guns there really are in New Zealand", said Philip Alpers, an Australia-based expert in gun laws and director of GunPolicy.org.

"I am deeply saddened by the terror attack in New Zealand & stand with our Muslim community to condemn this hate-fuelled violence", Mayor John Tory tweeted.

Ms Ardern said she would be reviewing events leading up to the attack to see how the suspect went unnoticed by authorities.

Daraghmeh says the 33-year-old Waseem moved to New Zealand five years ago and that he described it as the "safest place one could ever live in".

Tarrant, 28, was handcuffed and wearing a white prison jumpsuit when he quietly walked into the courtroom.

At around 1.40pm yesterday Australian Brenton Tarrant allegedly stormed Masjid Al Noor and Linwood Masjid, and opened fire.

Members of the Toronto Police force sit in their vehicle outside the Madinah Masjid mosque as people arrive for Jumu'ah prayer service on Danforth Ave. on Friday, March 15, 2019. The other two remain in custody but their role in the shootings remains unclear.

The court charged a second shooter, 18, with "intent to excite hostility or ill-will".

Police Commissioner Mike Bush also praised the officers who brought the massacre to a halt.

Our national security threat level has been lifted from low to high. Australia honoured the victims by lighting up some of the country's most famous landmarks, including the Sydney Opera House which projected the Silver Fern of New Zealand on its sails. In 2015, it had just eight.

The gunman meant to continue his attack if he hadn't been stopped, she said.

New Zealand is also generally considered to be welcoming to migrants and refugees.

The document was part of a bulk email that also went a number of senior New Zealand political figures, and a large number of domestic and global media organisations. In other forums, people discussed Muslim food restrictions as they prepared to drop off meals for those affected.

New South Wales state Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said his officers are investigating to help New Zealand police and to ensure the safety of residents in the Australian state where suspect Brenton Tarrant is from. I think it's a small group of people that have very, very serious problems, I guess. Facebook has since taken down his account. Children's screams can be heard in the distance as he returns to his auto to get another rifle. At least 49 are dead and dozens of others wounded.

I have spoken this evening to the mayor of Christchurch and I intend to speak this evening to the Imam.

"It's a big mosque and there were more than 200 people inside".

On Monday, government officials plan to hold a cabinet meeting which will "focus on the ease with which legal weapons can be modified to become military-style assault rifles, which are more strictly controlled". The demand was in response to a taunt by the gunman in Friday's shooting rampage in a 74-page manifesto in which he reportedly said "Hagia Sophia will free of minarets".

He portrayed himself as a racist and a fascist and raged against non-Westerners, but said China is the nation that most aligns with his political and social values.

Chris said it showed New Zealand's geographical isolation counted for little in a connected world.
