Toronto vigil honors victims of New Zealand mosque shootings

Chicago Muslim groups step up security after New Zealand mosque attacks

Shackled and wearing a white smock, Brenton Harrison Tarrant, 28, appeared in court Saturday morning charged with murder.

She said the man was arrested by two "rural community cops" 36 minutes after the first emergency call was made on Friday and was still an active shooter. More people were killed in an attack on a second mosque a short time later. "Many of the people require multiple trips to the theatre to deal with the complex series of injuries they have", said Christchurch Hospital's Chief of Surgery Greg Robertson.

"We're all one big family on this ship called Earth".

New Zealand media reported that between nine and 27 people were killed, but the death toll could not be confirmed.

"Thank you. for always helping us feel safe and secure", Frank Scarpitti wrote in a tweet.

Majority of New Zealanders "are very keen to support all of us, to give us full solidarity", says Ibrahim Abdul Halim.

In a statement, Fiji's prime minister Frank Bainimarama also expressed his shock at the shooting and sympathy for the victims. Muslims account for just over 1 percent of New Zealand's population. "We are working to have any footage removed", New Zealand police said. None of those arrested had a criminal history or were on watchlists in New Zealand or Australia. None of them had been on any security watch lists prior to the attack, officials said.

Mass shootings in New Zealand are rare.

Police say that this person was a member of the public armed with a gun with the intention of assisting officers. "New Zealand is home for all of us, and this despicable act will not change that feeling of closeness in us".

These nihilist, clash-of-civilisations narratives - whichever ideologies inform them - leave all nations more vulnerable to extremist violence.

Afghanistan's ambassador to Australia and New Zealand said two Afghans are missing and a third person of Afghan origin was treated and released from the hospital.

Many, such as the alt-right, are hidden in plain sight, with their proponents given a platform on social media websites - including Facebook, on which one of the terrorists in New Zealand live-streamed his rampage - as well as mainstream Western news outlets. "We will do whatever we can to help them heal and rise above this bad tragedy". The other two remain in custody but their role in the shootings remains unclear.

They said they were saddened by the "senseless" attacks.

Our thoughts and our prayers are with those who have been impacted today. As New Zealand has stood by us so we stand shoulder to shoulder with them, and with Muslims in New Zealand, here in the United Kingdom and around the world.

This, I want to assure people, is to ensure that all our agencies are responding in the most appropriate way, that includes at our borders.

Witness Len Peneha said he saw a man dressed in black enter the mosque and then heard dozens of shots, followed by people running from the mosque in terror.

"As a Muslim, we have to be positive".

"I was really lucky", Nour Travis, who was on the scene at Al Noor told New Zealand radio station NewsTalk ZB.

Meanwhile, the final day of the Auckland secondary schools dance festival Polyfest was cancelled following the attacks.

"They [cancelled it] for the sake of safety of the students and safety of our community".

Aupito said festival organisers have contacted schools about the decision.
