World leaders condemn New Zealand terrorist attack

World leaders condemn New Zealand terrorist attack

A man in his late 20s has been charged with murder, and two others arrested at the scene are being investigated.

Police around the Birmingham area have said they will be increasing their presence around "key religious buildings".

New Zealand is generally considered to be a welcoming country for migrants and refugees.

At least 41 people were killed at the Masjid Al Noor mosque in central Christchurch while at least seven people died inside the suburban Linwood Masjid Mosque.

However, the killers were not on any watch list confirmed by the authorities.

"We have one person in custody but we are unsure if there are other people".

One of the alleged gunmen has Australian citizenship, the Prime Minister of Austrlia, Australia, Scott Morrison, has said. "Pray for Christchurch, pray for New Zealand and pray for God's peace over the situation". "While we do not have anything to believe at this stage that there were any other suspects, we are not assuming that at this stage". A police statement gave no further detail of how it might be linked to the attacks.

He expressed grief and shock over the incident and expressed condolences for the victims. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has called the shooting an "unprecendented attack of violence".

Nadal withdraws from semis at Indian Wells
The meeting between Nadal and Federer would have been their 39th in long rivalry and the first since 2017. And the 20-time Grand Slam victor admitted he was disappointed when Nadal text him the news.

Referring to the four people detained by police, Ardern said, "These are people who I would describe as having extremist views that have absolutely no place in New Zealand".

The city was placed on lockdown immediately after the attacks at the Al Noor and Linwood mosques, where worshippers had gathered for Friday prayers.

British Prime Minister Theresa May offered deepest condolences "after the horrifying terrorist attack in Christchurch. Our heartfelt Duas go out to all of the victims, their families and the Muslim communities that have been tragically affected by the gunmen who killed our brothers and sisters half way across the world", the center stated in a post on Facebook.

"At least 49 people are dead".

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. "It's unbelievably nutty. I don't understand how anyone could do this to these people, to anyone".

The attack on two mosques on Friday in Christchurch "goes against everything Ebba stood for", Jeanette Akerlund told Swedish public television SVT.

He said the gunman was white and was wearing a helmet with some kind of device on top, giving him a military-type appearance. 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. He then walks outside, where he shoots at people on the sidewalk. A witness named Mark Nichols told the New Zealand Herald that he heard about five gunshots and that a worshiper returned fire with either a rifle or shotgun. After walking back outside and shooting a woman there, he gets back in his vehicle and drives away.

Tamin Iqbal Khan, a Bangladeshi cricket player, tweeted that the team was safe. "At this tragic time, my thoughts and prayers are with all New Zealanders". Nichols said he saw two wounded people being carried out on stretchers past his automotive shop. According to media reports, the attacker also live streamed one of the shootings, and the police promptly urged users not to share the link to the video.
