Suspected white supremacist charged with murder after New Zealand mosque shootings

Suspected white supremacist charged with murder after New Zealand mosque shootings

"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.

New Zealand police have charged a 28-year-old man with murder, and have taken two others into custody.

"There are many, many victims of this tragic event and we are giving every possible support to them".

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern rounded on purveyors of hate during a news conference Friday.

The names of the victims have been withheld by the court, but makeshift memorials have sprung up with flowers and notes honoring those affected and sending messages of hope and love.

I'd be lying if I were to say that I was shocked.

Imran had dropped off his father, an electrical engineer, at the Al Noor mosque on Friday and was looking for a parking space when the shooting began.

Mr Mazharuddin said the gunman was wearing body armour and shooting indiscriminately.

"I'm thinking what's going to happen the next time.it could be more people targeting somewhere else". The gunmen came from the back side. It was for a long time described as "the most English city outside of England", with its quaint gardens and picturesque gothic revival architecture. We had to jump the wall to escape.

The Bulgarian government has also said it was looking into Tarrant, who apparently visited the country late previous year, as well as having earlier travelled to other parts of the Balkans - including Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

He said they were praying "to our God of all peoples and of all cultures for peace, tolerance and good will".

Mosques across Victoria have planned a community open day for this Sunday and were keen for them to go ahead, Steendam said while asking people to go and support the Muslim communities, and maintaining vigilance.

"I could not contact two of my friends who are in the mosque as well", he said.

'We haven't seen these assault weapons used in Australia and New Zealand, ' Mr Barton told ABC News. Reuters was unable to confirm the footage's authenticity and police urged people not to view or share it.

Authorities declined to discuss potential motives for the attack. It was not signed. Another 48 people were hospitalized.

Tarrant appeared before a district judge and was silent throughout the appearance.

The former fitness instructor and self-professed fascist occasionally turned to look at media present in court during the brief hearing that the public were excluded from for security reasons.

"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".

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

The identities of the victims - further nationalities could be among the casualties, with Afghan and Malaysian government confirming nationals injured in the attack. Dunedin is about 225 miles from Christchurch.

Survivor Syed Mazharuddin told the New Zealand Herald that he was praying with about 60 to 70 people at the Linwood mosque when he heard gunshots. And at such a time, when the police come forward and the leaders of other faiths come forward like the rabbis from the synagogue, the pastors from the churches, they all came, and the politicians also. None of those arrested in the attacks had been on any security watch lists prior to the attack.

Ardern said the main suspect was a licensed gun owner who used five weapons during his rampage, including two semi-automatic weapons and two shotguns.

"While work is being done as to the chain of events that lead to both the holding of this gun license and the possession of these weapons, I can tell you one thing right now - our gun laws will change", she told reporters.
