Australian media broadcast footage from Christchurch shootings despite police warnings

He said he was inspired by Norwegian shooter Anders Breivik. He said he was a 28-year-old white Australian and a racist. "One of which has publicly stated that they were Australian-born. But I just ask people, don't share them".

In his chilling The Great Replacement' document, the assassin laid bare his deranged ideology, claiming he was influenced by far-right Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik, who murdered 77 people in 2011.

The visiting Bangladesh cricket team was arriving for prayers at one of the mosques when the shooting started but all members were safe, a team coach told Reuters.

2 mosques were attacked in Christchurch, the gunmen stormed the Linwood Mosque and the Al Noor Mosque and shot down men who were praying for their Friday prayers.

CNN has not been able to independently confirm any information about any of the attackers and the alleged video at this stage.

"The killer appears to have put out a "manifesto" based on white supremacist rhetoric which includes references to anti-Islamic comments". The gunman spends more than two minutes inside the mosque spraying terrified worshippers with bullets again and again, sometimes re-firing at people he has already cut down.

"This goes to the seriousness of the situation", Bush said.

Witness Len Peneha said he saw a man dressed in black enter the mosque and then heard dozens of shots, followed by people running from the mosque in terror.

The manifesto detailing motivations for the attack was posted on Friday morning onto a Twitter account with the same name and profile image as the Facebook page that streamed the attack.

Indonesia, the world's biggest Muslim-majority country, said six nationals were inside the mosque when the attack occurred, with three managing to escape and three still unaccounted for. Two others, whose roles remain unclear, are in custody.

She pronounced it "one of New Zealand's darkest days".

Australia's prime minister Scott Morrison said one of those arrested was an Australian citizen.

World leaders condemned the violence and offered condolences, with President Donald Trump tweeting, "We stand in solidarity with New Zealand".

"Indonesia strongly condemns this shooting act, especially at a place of worship while a Friday prayer was ongoing", Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said in a statement.

"But, as I say, New Zealand has been chosen because we are not a place where violent extremism exists".

"Just heard news of the devastating reports from Christchurch, New Zealand".

The online footage, which appeared to have been captured on a camera strapped to the gunman's head, showed him driving as music played in his vehicle.

On Saturday, outside one of the two mosques, 32-year-old Ash Mohammed pushed through police barricades in hopes of finding out what happened to his father and two brothers, whose cellphones rang unanswered.
