PewDiePie 'Sickened' New Zealand Suspect Mentioned His Name

PewDiePie 'Sickened' New Zealand Suspect Mentioned His Name

Forty-one people were killed at the Al Noor mosque, seven at a mosque in the Linwood neighbourhood and one died in hospital, police said.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the events in Christchurch represented "an extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence", and that numerous victims could be migrants or refugees. From what we know, it does appear to have been very well planned.

"It is clear that this can only be described as a terrorist attack", Ardern told the Herald. One person with us had a bullet in her arm.

At the time of writing, a man in his 20s has been charged with murder, whereas another three - two men and a woman - have been apprehended.

Journalist Chris Lynch, a radio host on New Zealand station ZB Radio, told CNN that one of the shootings had occurred at "the biggest mosque in all of Christchurch".

Authorities have not specified who they detained, but said none had been on any watch list.

The man who claimed responsibility for the shooting said: "he came to New Zealand only to plan and train for the attack".

Brenton Tarrant said that he is a white supremacist and says that he is from the "British Stock".

- Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said one of those arrested was an Australian citizen and described the suspected attacker as an "extremist right-wing violent terrorist". He would not say whether the same shooter was responsible for both attacks.

An eyewitness told Radio New Zealand that he heard shots fired and four people were lying on the ground, with "blood everywhere".

All mosques in New Zealand had been asked to shut their doors, police said.

After 49 lives were lost in this senseless attack, police also found improvised explosive devices strapped to vehicles, according to Buzzfeed News. One has been defused while police are working to defuse the second IED. What looked like the same weapons appeared in the livestream of the mosque attack on Friday.

An anonymous post on Friday on the discussion site 8chan, known for a wide range of content including hate speech, said the writer was going to "carry out an attack against the invaders", and included links to a Facebook live stream, in which the Friday shooting appeared, and a manifesto. "At that moment, I realised it was really serious", the man said.

Three Bangladeshis were among the dead and one was missing, the consulate said. "I don't understand how anyone could do this to these people, to anyone".

On Saturday, the prime minister said the "primary perpetrator" in the shootings was a licensed gun owner and legally acquired the five guns used. He said one was slightly injured.

Just 1% of New Zealand's population of nearly five million are Muslim, according to government statistics, less than 50,000 people in 2013.
