PM Khan condemns terrorist attack on mosques in Christchurch

There were two attacks on Friday in Christchurch - one at the Masjid Al Noor Mosque next to Hagley Park, and one at the Linwood Masjid Mosque in the suburb of Linwood. Police also defused explosive devices in a auto.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said "gun laws will change" in the country.

Three Bangladeshis were among the dead and one was missing, the consulate said.

Ms Ardern said "a complex and comprehensive investigation is under way", with Australian authorities involved.

The Metropolitan Police are trying to establish a motive for the incident in east London but witnesses reportedly claim the men shouted "Islamophobic" comments. One person was later released.

Ardern said New Zealand had been placed on its highest security threat level.

There was a heavy police presence at the hospital where families of the more than 40 wounded had gathered.

Ankara on Friday said it was investigating Tarrant's multiple visits to Turkey, and who he might have met while he was there. A man who claimed responsibility for the shootings left a 74-page anti-immigrant manifesto in which he explained who he was and his reasoning for the attack.

Speaking in Sydney, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison described the gunman as "an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist".

"As the details of the story continue to develop, we urge all of our community members to be vigilant, especially while attending Friday prayers", CAIR said in a statement.

"There is one charge of murder brought at the moment, it is reasonable to assume that there will be others", said the judge, whose name was not reported by the AP. The antipathy towards Muslims, anti-immigration rhetoric and permissiveness towards hate speech (furthered by an absolutist interpretation of free speech and expression) has not only in several instances been codified in legislation but has also informed counter violent extremism policies.

The news felt particularly jarring for a community still in shock from the 2017 shooting at a Quebec mosque that killed six people, she said, adding Canada's close political and societal kinship with New Zealand made the latest shooting feel "weirdly close to home".

"One leg of an injured needed to be amputated while another suffered bullet injuries in his chest", Rahman Bhuiyan said.

"This is a time of distress, we are in disarray, we don't know why this has happened", he said. I mean, you're killing people.

But Yasalar said there is no escaping the horrendous magnitude of the events in Christchurch.

I just want her to feel proud and to feel she's able to express her opinion and stand against injustices, because an injustice against anyone is an injustice against everyone. "A message went out saying "we need help organising this" ... people are just not in a frame of mind". He said one was slightly injured.

"My father said how important it is to spread love and unity among each other and protect every member of the society we live in", Omar said.

Mr Mazharuddin said the gunman was wearing body armour and shooting indiscriminately.

Another victim of the Christchurch mosque attacks tried to wrestle the gunman's weapon off him in a desperate bid to save others, it has emerged. Children's screams can be heard in the distance as he returns to his vehicle to get another rifle. Forty-one people were killed at the Al Noor mosque.

While the mass shooting was meant to sow fear and division, President Gertler said, "we hope that ultimately those responsible will fail, utterly, in their vicious pursuit". The singer bellows, "I am the god of hellfire!" and the gunman drives away.
