‘Ordinary white man?’ Picture of New Zealand accused emerges

‘Ordinary white man?’ Picture of New Zealand accused emerges

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Saturday that weapons used in an attack in Christchurch, NZ appeared to have been modified.

"Just around the entrance door there were elderly people sitting there praying and he just started shooting at them", Mazharuddin told Sky.

Tarrant was one of three people arrested in connection with the shootings. Stressing that India strongly condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, PM Modi said, "Hatred and violence have no place in diverse and democratic societies".

She said that she had already instructed the ODESC (Officials Committee for Domestic and External Security Coordination) to report to Cabinet on Monday on Friday's events with a view to strengthening the country's systems on a range of fronts including, but not limited to, firearms, border controls, enhanced information-sharing with Australia, and any practice reinforcement of their watch-list processes.

New Zealand Cricket (NZC) CEO David White said, "This isn't about cricket; it's about something much bigger and much more important than that".

According to the police, 41 people were killed at Al Noor mosque and seven at Linwood mosque while one injured died in a hospital.

Scrawled in English and several Eastern European languages were the names of numerous historical military figures - many of them Europeans involved in fighting the Ottoman forces in the 15th and 16th centuries.

The Union flag was flown at halfmast above Buckingham Palace as The Queen sent her condolences to the people of New Zealand on behalf of Britain. In fact, for many, New Zealand was a choice, a place they actively came to and committed themselves to, the place they were raising their families, where they were part of communities they loved and who loved them. "The people of New Zealand are in our thoughts and prayers". "Kia Kaha [stay strong]".

Brenton Tarrant, in white prison suit, barefooted, handcuffed and flanked by two armed police officers, made a brief appearance in the court for about five minutes.

The online video footage, which appeared to have been captured on a camera strapped to the gunman's head, showed red petrol canisters in the back of his vehicle, along with weapons.

One man told how he saw children being shot at the al Noor mosque saying: "There were bodies all over me".

On Friday, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison confirmed that the man was an Australian-born citizen while describing him as "an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist".

Grainy video apparently shot from a passing auto shows the gunman's light-colored vehicle at the side of a busy road, rammed against the curb by a police auto and with one of its front wheels suspended in the air.

New Zealand police commissioner Mike Bush said on March 16, the morning after the massacre, that authorities have no information about any imminent threats in the country but that everyone should continue to be vigilant in the wake of mass shootings at two mosques. "And more importantly, from our individual perspective, no nexus to New York City". Former US president Bill Clinton called it a "dark day for humanity".
