Australian PM Scott Morrison Condemns ‘Extremist, Right-Wing, Violent Terrorist’ in Christchurch Massacre

New Zealand shooting at mosque in Christchurch city What we know so far

At least 49 people have been killed in mass shootings at two mosques in New Zealand, in an attack broadcast in horrifying live video by an heavily-armed white nationalist.

One gunman reportedly livestreamed the shooting at Al Noor Mosque in a 17-minute video and wrote a manifesto declaring his intentions, Commissioner Bush told the media. Asked about possible impeachment in a December interview with Reuters, he said, "I think that the people would revolt if that happened". "It is a horrifying assault on a way of life that embodies decency, community and friendship".

"We, New Zealand, were not a target because we are a safe harbor for those who hate", Ardern said.

"Many of those affected may be migrants, maybe refugees".

The couples signed off their message with the Maori phrase "Kia Kaha", meaning "stay strong". For many, this may not have been the place they were born.

I have spoken this evening to the mayor of Christchurch and I intend to speak this evening to the Imam.

She went on to praise the emergency services and volunteers providing support in the wake of the attack.

Historical ties with those two countries, as well as a general reaction to those events internationally impacted New Zealand's view on their own national laws.

Walid's optimism was shared by the Minnesota congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who posted in a tweet: "We must not live in fear". In many ways, this makes far-right ideology actually more unsafe than Daesh, as no one in the mainstream supports them. He also denied speculation that the hospital had also been attacked.

Former US President Barack Obama wrote on Twitter: "Michelle and I send our condolences to the people of New Zealand". Byman said that words have "consequences" and that the "demonization of Muslim communities" contributes to societal polarization and inspires violence.

'We stand in solidarity with the people of Christchurch.

"My warmest sympathy and best wishes goes out to the people of New Zealand after the frightful massacre in the Mosques", Trump tweeted. 49 innocent people have so senselessly died, with so many more seriously injured.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison called the individual an "extremist, right-wing" terrorist.

A vigil for the victims of the attack, organised by Turn To Love, a global anti-terrorism campaign, has been planned for outside New Zealand's embassy in London on Friday afternoon.

"We urge tolerance, inclusion and respect for all people", he said in a statement.

The shooter who is suspected to have carried out at least one of the New Zealand mosque attacks is an Australian citizen. "It was surreal." There were tales of heroism at the Linwood mosque too, where Syed Mazharuddin said a man wrestled a weapon off the attacker, who cut short his killing spree and ran to a waiting auto. With a grim expression, she said the country seems to have been targeted because of its welcoming and tolerance. "It is crucial that at this time we all remain united against hatred, division and bigotry".

"We must unite against hate", the groups said in a news release Friday. "Today is a tragedy not just for Muslims, but for all people of faith and goodwill". In it, there is reference to the Finsbury Mosque attacker, Darren Osborne. She confirmed that the police have apprehended one person in custody.

During a Friday press briefing, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Washington condemns the attack and offered the American people's thoughts and prayers.
