Man in court after 49 killed in New Zealand mosque shootings

The identities of the victims - further nationalities could be among the casualties, with Afghan and Malaysian government confirming nationals injured in the attack.

She announced that New Zealand had raised its security threat level to the highest degree and said four suspects who harbored extremist views were now in police custody with one man who police said was in his late 20s charged with murder.

One of the men in his late 20s has been charged with murder and is due in court on Saturday.

The chief executive of Calderdale Council Robin Tuddenham said on Twitter: "Tragic and distressing news from New Zealand".

"I honestly can't believe that somebody I have probably had daily dealings with and had shared conversations and interacted with would be capable of something to this extreme", Gray told the news outlet. "I think we've had a long tenure of political stability over the last ten or so years." he said.

The attack has shocked the local Muslim population, many of whom had come to New Zealand as refugees. Immigration's high and our communities really welcome immigrants with open arms.

Multiple people were killed in mass shootings at two mosques full of people attending Friday prayers, as New Zealand police warned people to stay indoors as they tried to determine if more than one gunman was involved.

Authorities have not elaborated on who they detained. However, a man who claimed to be responsible for the shootings left a 74-page "anti-immigrant manifesto" at the scene. He said he was a 28-year-old white Australian.

The suspects' ideology and preparation for the attack - Prime Minister Ardern described them as having "extremist views", but New Zealand's police commissioner said the man charged with murder was not known to intelligence services.

Another 48 people are being treated for gunshot wounds after what the country's prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, called "one of New Zealand's darkest days".

"It is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack", Ardern told reporters on Friday.

At about the same time, there was a second shooting at Masjid mosque in Linwood, where seven more were killed.

He then walks outside to the street, where he shoots at people on the pavement.

He compared it to the shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh that killed 11 people last October, deadly attacks on churches in Egypt by Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and an attack by a far-right Israeli gunman on a West Bank mosque in 1994 that killed 29 people.

Tamim Iqbal tweeted: "Entire team got saved from active shooters!"

"On this Muslim day of prayer may we all commit to pray and work for peace and safety for all".

Of the victims, she said: "I will have been amongst other members of the public who will have seen the footage as the injured were being brought to Christchurch A&E and you certainly can see from that footage there is a real range of ages there". In 2010 and 2011, Christchurch experienced severe earthquakes.

"They haven't really recovered from that".

"It shows that extremism is nurtured and that it lives in many places", she said.

"This attack now is sort of another blow to an already weakened heart across the city".

A spokesman for New Zealand's interior ministry said the video is likely to be classified as objectionable content under local law, and could be illegal to share.
