  • Flowers and a New Zealand national flag are seen at a memorial as tributes to victims of the mosque attacks near Linwood mosque in Christchurch New Zealand

A video of one of the shootings was live streamed on Facebook by a man identifying himself as Brenton Tarrant. "If they are not of our people, but live in our lands, they must be removed".

Two armed guards brought Brenton Tarrant into court.

New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern has said that gun laws will be reformed after the attacks, as legislation allowed the suspect the legally obtain a semi-automatic weapon.

Ms Ardern, meanwhile, also vowed New Zealand would be changing its gun laws, after it was discovered Tarrant was licensed and had five guns, some modified.

Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian citizen, appeared in a Christchurch District Court Saturday.

Outside one of the two mosques, 32-year-old Ash Mohammed pushed through police barricades in hopes of finding out what happened to his father and two brothers, whose cellphones rang unanswered.

Dozens more were wounded when Tarrant opened fire on worshippers in two mosques.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern awed American gun control advocates Friday night when she announced that her administration would promptly pursue changes to her country's gun laws following the shooting deaths of 49 people at two mosques in Christchurch-in stark contrast to the response of the USA government to similar attacks.

The President of French Polynesia, Edouard Fritch sent a message of support to New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, following the attack in Christchurch.

The gym's owner Tracey Gray told Australian media, "I think something must have changed in him during the years he spent travelling overseas..." Flanked by two police officers, he smirked when media persons photographed him during the hearing and was seen making the white power gesture, New Zealand Herald reported.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi says authorities in Christchurch, where the shootings took place, are trying to determine whether three other Pakistanis who have been missing since Friday's attack were among the fatalities. One victim died at a hospital.

Tarrant posted a manifesto online before the attack, suggesting a racially-motivated act of terrorism.

None of those arrested had a criminal history or were on watchlists in New Zealand or Australia.

"If this evil thinks we will stop going to our mosque here or stop doing our worship to our god, Allah, we can not ever stop", Linwood mosque Imam Ibrahim Abdelhalim said. "Rhetoric of racism, division and extremism has no place not only in New Zealand but I would say in a society as a whole".

"Fijian hearts are breaking for our brothers and sisters in New Zealand - a place where an atrocity of this nature is shocking nearly beyond comprehension".

President Donald Trump, who has a record of Islamophobic rhetoric, online behavior and policies, tweeted out his "warmest sympathy and best wishes" to the people of New Zealand.

The firearms included two semi-automatic rifles, two shotguns and a lever-action weapon, she said, speaking to reporters in Wellington before heading to Christchurch.

He acknowledged the frustration being felt by family members of the victims, who were desperate to bury their loved ones.

"A category-A firearm holder can purchase the firearms without the magazines or the things that will enable them to be in the state that they were", Bush said.
