Brenton Tarrant Live Streamed Attack

He said there was one person in custody "but we are unsure if there are other people". Mazharuddin said that people all around him, including his friends, were shot and bleeding heavily, and that it took ambulances about half an hour to get there.

An ashen-faced Ardern said she was unable to confirm the number of fatalities, with events still unfolding.

The New York Times reports the camera used to stream the shootings was worn by the gunman as he attacked the Al Noor Mosque.

Meanwhile, cities around the USA are boosting security at mosques ahead of Friday's prayer services.

The police said there were also multiple improvised explosive devices attached to vehicles as part of the attack. He said he and others escaped by breaking through a glass door.

Tarrant murdered 49 people Friday in a Mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand.

"It is clear that this is one of New Zealand's darkest days". Neither Ardern nor police gave a casualty toll. "The attacks, the terror", one reporter said. "We also cooperate with law enforcement to facilitate their investigations as required".

The police commissioner warned anybody who was thinking of going to a mosque anywhere in New Zealand to stay put.

The Bangladesh National Cricket team was due to visit one of the mosques but managed to escape the violence.

Both GT and St George Hospital witnessed frantic scenes as injured and dead were brought after the mishap took place. According to an official, the FOB was last repaired in 2010-11 and was constructed around 35 years ago.

The foreign minister of Indonesia, which has the world's biggest Muslim population, condemned the shooting.

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. The 17-minute video showed the man dressed in black shooting at worshipers and "piles of bodies" with a semiautomatic rifle.

Media reported that a gunman opened fire inside a mosque in Christchurch's Hagley Park district. It has been confirmed that all four held extremist views but were not on any police watchlists. They have no place in New Zealand.

One witness told stuff.co.nz he was praying when he heard shooting - and then saw his wife lying dead on the footpath outside when he fled. "They are shaken but good".

He tweeted: "Our hearts go out to the people of New Zealand following the news of this bad act in Christchurch".

Violent crime is rare in New Zealand and police do not usually carry guns.
