Four in custody following NZ mosque shooting

Four in custody following NZ mosque shooting

He said one was slightly injured.

A second man said he quickly realised the seriousness of the incident when he saw people covered in blood.

"Some people had blood on their body, and some were limping".

"I saw dead people everywhere".

The attacks in Christchurch, in which 40 people were killed, were reportedly live streamed on several social media sites by the shooter and have since been used in broadcasts and shared on social media.

He said he was inspired by Norwegian shooter Anders Breivik. For many this may have not been the place they were born. I had a regular childhood, without any great issues.

"This is the strongest possible condemnation of the ideology of the people who did this". He walks back into the mosque, where there are at least two dozen people lying on the ground.

"Police are aware there is extremely distressing footage relating to the incident in Christchurch circulating online", New Zealand police said in a statement.

As you may know, shockingly enough, the New Zealand Christchurch mosque shooter that opened fire and killed 49 people, mentioned PewDiePie before the massacre!

In a press conference, New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described the attack as "one of New Zealand's darkest days".

Aside from the 49 who were killed, 40 people are now being treated in the Christchurch Hospital for gunshot wounds.

CNN has not been able to independently confirm any information about any of the attackers and the alleged video at this stage. A security analyst who read the manifesto told the Herald that it was "straight out of the white supremacist playbook". The mosques were packed with worshippers gathered for Friday prayers. He said he then went into the mosque to try to help.

Peneha, who lives next door, said the gunman ran out of the mosque, dropped what appeared to be a semi-automatic weapon in his driveway and fled.

The shocking video of the shooting was streamed on Facebook and appears to show a man enter the houses of worship while firing at people. They were planning to attack a third mosque in the town of Ashburton if they could make it there, as per reports. Two others, whose roles remain unclear, are in custody.

Brenton Tarrant Live Streamed Attack
The New York Times reports the camera used to stream the shootings was worn by the gunman as he attacked the Al Noor Mosque . The 17-minute video showed the man dressed in black shooting at worshipers and "piles of bodies" with a semiautomatic rifle.

He has been described by Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison as an "extremist right-wing violent terrorist".

New Zealand's threat level has now been raised from low to high.

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

"You have chosen us but we utterly reject and condemn you". In a statement he said: "Our hearts go out to the people of New Zealand following the news of this bad act in Christchurch".

The police commissioner warned anybody who was thinking of going to a mosque anywhere in New Zealand on Friday to stay put. "I just don't understand it".

"The firing went on and on".

The YouTuber is now the most subscribed to person on the platform and since another channel has been very close to taking that number one spot from him for a while, the words used by Tarrant had become pretty much a meme, as well as a way for people to support the Swedish entertainer. "When the firing stopped, I looked over the fence, there was one guy, changing his gun".

The video shows the gunman then driving off at high speed and firing from his auto.

She also said that four individuals had been "apprehended" by police.

Two improvised explosive devices were attached to a vehicle as part of the attack. The gunman's video had shown red petrol canisters in the back of his auto, along with weapons.

A cricket match between New Zealand and Bangladesh scheduled to start Saturday was canceled after the Bangladesh cricket team had a narrow escape.

"They were on the bus, which was just pulling up to the mosque when the shooting begun", Mario Villavarayen, team strength and conditioning coach, told Reuters in a message.

"They have absolutely no place in New Zealand and, in fact, no place in the world", Ardern said. He was killed by police.
