Rural Cops Brought Down Christchurch Massacre Accused: New Zealand PM

Rural Cops Brought Down Christchurch Massacre Accused: New Zealand PM

He was remanded in custody and is set to reappear in court April 5. "There is one charge of murder brought at the moment, it is reasonable to assume that there will be others", said Judge Paul Kellar.

It is the worst attack of its kind in the country's history and was dubbed its "darkest day" by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. Dressed in a white prison robe, he had his hands cuffed in front of him and tethered to a belt around his waist. Footage of the attack on one of the mosques was broadcast live on Facebook, and a "manifesto" denouncing immigrants as "invaders" was also posted online via links to related social media accounts. Worshippers, possibly dead or wounded, lay on the floor, the video showed.

48 people were injured in the terrorist attack that was carried out during Friday prayers at Al Noor Masjid and a smaller mosque in Linwood.

The police initially said that four people had been detained in the wake of the attacks. No images have emerged from the second mosque.

Residents pay their respects at Hagley College for the victims of the mosque attacks in Christchurch.

Condemning the terror strike, Ardern had described it as a "terror attack" and said it "appears to have been well planned".

We are a proud nation of more than 200 ethnicities, 160 languages, and amongst said diversity, we share common values and the one we place the currency on right now and tonight is our compassion and the support for the community of those directly affected by this tragedy and secondly, the strongest possibly condemnation of the ideology of the people who did this. "There were elderly people sitting there praying and he just started shooting at them". "We are part of the New Zealand community".

"He was professional, he was punctual, reliable.as normal as one person to the next", she said.

Ardern called on the USA government to show "sympathy and love for all Muslim communities", and told the press that "the person who has committed this violent act has no place here".

"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.

Naeem Rashid, originally from Abbottabad in Pakistan, and his son, were named as being among the 49 victims killed in the terror attack yesterday.

"Hi guys how are you".

They included Asif Shaikh, 44, who said he was among more than 100 people at the Al Noor mosque when the attacker came in. Police have not yet described the scale of the shooting but urged people in central Christchurch to stay indoors.

According to media reports, his father died of cancer in 2010 and gym owner Gray said she believed he had a mother and sister still living in Grafton. Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday wrote to his New Zealand counterpart expressing his deepest condolences to the bereaved families of the victims.

New South Wales Police also issued a statement assuring Australia's Muslim community that there were no specific threats domestically. I can only imagine now how New Zealanders are feeling.

"I'm not sure how to deal with this".

"Today was bigger than rugby", Perenara told reporters.

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

"The problem is that it's not new", said Imam Yousef Wahb before mid-afternoon prayers.

"She came here for the peace.now she is shocked", he said, adding his mother was too afraid to leave her house.

Christchurch was the home of these victims.

Brenton Tarrant, 28, used five guns - "two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns and a lever-action firearm", the prime minister said.

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.

New Zealand's firearm laws have remained largely unchanged since 1992, though subsequent government reviews have called for reforms.
