Australian man charged over Christchurch massacre appears in court

New Zealand Mosque Shootings YouTube's PewDiePie'Sickened by Gunman's Namedrop

The group "Muslims in New Zealand" said it was "overwhelmed" with messages of support in a Tweet.

Beyond that, the New Zealand Police noted in a separate release that in 20 years, from December 1998 to December 2018, there were a total of 15 murders committed by someone, who had a firearms license.

Police first responded to reports of shots fired in central Christchurch around 1:40 p.m. local time on Friday.

Mr Wakefield, who was born in New Zealand, said his birth country missed an opportunity when it failed to follow Australia's example on gun reform following the Port Arthur massacre.

Two armed guards escorted Tarrant into the court and he showed no expression as District Court Judge Paul Kellar read one charge of murder to him, the AP reported. That was almost 30 years ago and was the deadliest shooting in New Zealand's history, until Friday. This is now the worst mass shooting in New Zealand's history. Two improvised explosive devices were located in a vehicle, according to investigators. Though he claimed not to be a Nazi, in the video he livestreamed of the shooting the number 14 is seen on his rifle.

"It is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack", Ardern said earlier on Friday, noting that numerous victims could be migrants or refugees.

"It is therefore essential that our elected leaders speak out clearly and unequivocally against such attacks and name them for the Islamophobic terrorist attacks that they are".

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison earlier confirmed that one of the four people taken into custody is Australian.

Radio New Zealand said an eyewitness saw a man wearing a helmet and glasses and a military style jacket open fire inside one of the mosques.

London's mayor, Sadiq Khan, said the city's Metropolitan Police force would be visible outside mosques.

"To think that a mosque, a place of peace, tranquility, reflection, and meditation becomes a place where people are targeted simply due to their faith is horrifying and we can't let that happen in Canada or anywhere around the world", Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada Ahmed Hussen told the crowd at the vigil.

He wrote that he planned to carry out "an attack against the invaders".

Facebook said it had deleted the gunman's accounts "shortly after the livestream commenced" after being alerted by police.

"Horrified to hear of Christchurch mosque shootings".

Baitul Islam's imam, Muhammed Mirza, told CP24 morning prayers Friday were dedicated to the Christchurch victims and he hoped Canada would not suffer any more violence.

He visited Bulgaria from November 9-15 previous year claiming he wanted "to visit historical sites and study the history of the Balkan country", Bulgaria's public prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov said, adding that the inquiry would establish if this was "correct or if he had other objectives". It has been rebuilding since an natural disaster in 2011 killed 185 people and destroyed many downtown buildings.

Those "elements" were people affiliated with the Canadian Yellow Vest movement, whose Facebook page included some comments celebrating the New Zealand attacks Friday.

Christchurch is home to almost 400,000 people and is sometimes called the Garden City.
