NZ PM Ardern meets with mosque leaders

NZ PM Ardern meets with mosque leaders”

Bishop of Polynesia - The Most Reverend Fereimi Cama said the Anglican Diocese of Polynesia unequivocally condemned this act of terrorism. "So we are doing that as quickly and as sensitively as possible".

"We grieve with you and the Muslim community", former U.S. President Barack Obama tweeted early Friday morning following the attacks.

CHRISTCHURCH - The main suspect in New Zealand's worst peacetime mass shooting meant to continue the rampage before he was caught by police, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Saturday.

49 innocent people have so senselessly died, with so many more seriously injured.

Beyond his white nationalistic views, he claimed to be an environmentalist and said he is a fascist who believes China is the nation that most aligns with his political and social values.

A short distance away, 39 people were being treated in hospital for gunshot wounds and other injuries inflicted in the massacre.

It's been extremely hard for some to find their way back to their loved ones following the attack, and as such members of the community have had difficulty connecting with their families. "There are obviously questions being asked of how this person was able to enter the country and undertake this act of terror". "We are all here to help them in washing the body, putting them in the grave". "I feel that's a very powerful way of being an advocate", said Rania Ayoub, director of public relations at the Muslim Educational Trust.

"The family understands that it's a crime scene".

"They were not on any watchlists either here or in Australia", she said.

Still, it was hard, he said, because the grieving process wouldn't really begin until he could bury his cousin.

New Zealand's prime minister Jacinda Arden has vowed to change the country's gun laws in the wake of the shooting spree that stunned the world.

Under a nearby tree, someone had left a potted plant adorned with cut out red paper hearts. "To move forward as a world, we need to recognize diversity as a source of strength, and not a threat". We wish we knew your favourite song, what makes you smile, what makes you cry.

The gunmen live-streamed horrific footage of their attack on Facebook. Within minutes of the gunman opening fire at Al Noor Mosque at around 1.45pm local time (8.45am Singapore time), police secured the area, closing shops and businesses.

In a manifesto posted on social media, the purported shooter reportedly described Trump as a "symbol of renewed white identity".

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

"He used to tell us life was good in New Zealand and its people are good and welcoming", said Elyan's brother, Muath.

"The individual charged with murder had not come to the attention of the intelligence community, nor the police, for extremism", she said.

Although owned licensed guns continue to rise every year with 238,7000 registered owners in 2017 according to gunpolicy.org, gun-inflicted deaths have remained stable with an annual rate of about one death per 100,000 people - a number still higher than Italy, Portugal, Spain and Germany.

In the aftermath, the country's threat level was raised from low to high, police warned Muslims against going to a mosque anywhere in New Zealand, and the national airline cancelled several flights in and out of Christchurch, a city of almost 400,000.
