Victims rise to 50 in Christchurch mosque attacks, 1 suspect left

Tarrant was remanded without a plea and is due back in court on April 5 where police said he was likely to face further charges.

One worshiper, Mohan Ibn Ibrahim, said he was inside one of the mosques when the shooting began. The camera attached to his head recording the massacre follows the barrel of his weapon, like some macabre video game. 48 people were injured in the terrorist attack that was carried out during Friday prayers at Al Noor Masjid and a smaller mosque in Linwood.

"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". No images have emerged from there.

Police said Tarrant tried to evade arrest and did not surrender voluntarily.

Residents pay their respects by placing flowers for the victims of the mosques attacks in Christchurch.

A spokesman from Ardern's office confirmed the document was sent to a generic address not checked by the prime minister herself, as part of a bulk email that also went a number of senior New Zealand political figures and large number of domestic and global media organisations.

"It is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack", Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said, noting that numerous victims could be migrants or refugees.

A spokesman said the email did not describe the specific incident and that there was "nothing in the content or timing that would have been able to prevent the attack".

Ansun Zhong, owner of Chong's Chinese restaurant in Christchurch City Central, said the shooting greatly affected people's life in Christchurch.

Another two individuals are still in custody as the police continue to determine if they were involved in any way.

None of those arrested had a criminal history or were on watchlists in New Zealand or Australia.

Twelve operating theatres worked through the night on the more than 40 people wounded, said hospital authorities.

He says 36 victims remain in hospital with two of them in critical condition.

"Hi guys how are you". Facebook, Twitter and YouTube all said they had taken steps to remove copies of the videos.

Christchurch is a city of about 400,000 residents, still recovering from a massive natural disaster in 2011 that killed 187 people.

A Jordanian man says his 4-year-old niece is fighting for her life after being wounded in the New Zealand mosque shootings.

"The people of New Zealand are in our thoughts and prayers".

On Saturday, Bangladesh players left Christchurch.

The victims of Friday's shooting included immigrants from Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Indonesia, and Malaysia.

"Fijian hearts are breaking for our brothers and sisters in New Zealand - a place where an atrocity of this nature is shocking nearly beyond comprehension".

Sayyad Milne, 14, died at the Al Noor mosque which he attended with his mother and friends every Friday, the New Zealand Herald reported.

"I still don't know where he is", she said.

"It's the time for change", said Ardern. While interpretation of Islamic law regarding burials varies, burying a person as soon as possible after death is a fundamental principal of Islam, usually no more than 24 hours later.

She called the mass shooting "an extraordinary act of violence", and vowed "our gun laws will change".

"When people, of course, hear that this individual had acquired a gun licence and acquired weapons of that range, then obviously I think people will be seeking change, and I'm committing to that", Ms Ardern said.

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 Pacific Islands Association of non-governmental Organisations (PIANGO) also expressed its "heartfelt grief and sorrow" over the attacks.

President Donald Trump, who has a record of Islamophobic rhetoric, online behavior and policies, tweeted out his "warmest sympathy and best wishes" to the people of New Zealand.

He acknowledged the frustration being felt by family members of the victims, who were desperate to bury their loved ones. "My message was sympathy and love for all Muslim communities", she said she told him.

Ardern said she had asked authorities to look into whether there was any activity on social media or elsewhere ahead of the attack that should have triggered a response.
