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

It was "reasonable to assume" Tarrant would face further murder charges, Judge Kellar said.

Footage of the attack on one of the mosques was broadcast live on Facebook, and a "manifesto" was also posted online that denounced immigrants as "invaders".

The camera attached to his head recording the massacre follows the barrel of his weapon, like some macabre video game.

At around 1.40pm yesterday Australian Brenton Tarrant allegedly stormed Masjid Al Noor and Linwood Masjid, and opened fire. No images have emerged from there.

Aziz said: "He gets into his auto and I just got the gun and threw it on his window like an arrow and blasted his window".

"The offender was mobile, there were two other firearms in the vehicle that the offender was in, and it absolutely was his intention to continue with his attack", Ardern told reporters in Christchurch.

"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.

After her press conference, New Zealand Attorney General David Parker promised a crowd at a vigil for the victims of the shooting that the government would ban semi-automatic weapons, according to the New Zealand Herald.

The gunman meant to continue his attack if he hadn't been stopped, she said.

"Police responded immediately to the call they received relating to the attack". "The horrific active shooter scenario at a mosque is something we all pray never happens (but) there is no active intelligence that there is any immediate threat in the U.S. But we can not be complacent". Two others two remain in custody in connection with the shooting, but their role remains unclear.

He had no criminal history in New Zealand or Australia, and had not drawn the attention of the intelligence community for extremist views.

She also told that out of total 48 injured people, 39 were still in hospitals with 11 in intensive care. An eighth victim died at the hospital.

"Hi guys how are you".

Director-General of the Pacific Community (SPC) Colin Tukuitonga also showed his support for New Zealand and those who lost loved ones.

A noisy generator raring from a construction site next to the Christchurch Justice Precinct was a stark and irritating reminder of those tragic events, as media and members of the public gathered awaiting Tarrant's court appearance.

"She came here for the peace.now she is shocked", he said, adding his mother was too afraid to leave her house.

Speaking later on Saturday in Christchurch, Ardern said it "appeared" the guns had been modified.

Two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns and lever-action gun were used in the attacks.

Kim Kardashian applauded New Zealand's lawmakers for proposing to change the country's gun laws following the mosque shootings that left at least 49 people dead.

New Zealand citizens as young as 16, provided they pass a background check to get a firearms license, can possess a long gun. Tarrant said nothing, entered no plea to the charge and did not apply to have his name withheld.

The AR-15 is a semi-automatic version of the United States military M16 rifle.

Generally semi-automatic weapons can only be bought with an E-class licenses which are much more hard to obtain.

Australia imposed stricter rules on gun control and bought back firearms after a mass shooting left 35 people dead and 23 injured at a cafe in Port Arthur, Tasmania, in 1996.
