Australia steps up patrols after New Zealand mosque massacre

Twin attacks on Muslim worshippers in two mosques in New Zealand that killed 49 on Friday continue to gather condemnations around the world. Three men and one woman were in custody and one man had been charged with murder. Police said they were trying to determine how they might be involved.

At least 49 people were killed and 48 injured in multiple shootings in two mosques in New Zealand's city of Christchurch on March 15, 2019.

Four people have been arrested in connection with the attack.

"I can confirm that the individual who was taken into custody... is an Australian-born citizen", Morrison said at a press conference, aired at Periscope. One person with us had a bullet in her arm.

Asked about the attackers not being on intelligence agency watchlists, Ms Ardern said it was an indication that they "had not acted in a way that warranted it". "We should pray for the people of New Zealand, but especially communities around Christchurch that have suffered so much in recent years".

The Prime Minister said the attack is also deliberate attempt to demonize legitimate Muslim political struggles.

"1.3 billion Muslims have collectively been blamed for any act of terror".

Ms Ardern said: "Many directly affected by this shooting may be migrants to New Zealand; they may even be refugees here".

A spokeswoman for the police said: "Following on from the horrific attacks on mosques in New Zealand we will be conducting reassurance patrols at mosques across the county".

He said Australian authorities were investigating any links between the country and the attack, but declined to provide further details about the gunman. "Our thoughts & prayers are with the families of the victims", Gargash wrote.

"The content of the video is disturbing and will be harmful for people to see", he said. "I stand with you".

Eyewitnesses who still stood in shock outside the two Christchurch mosques, where they were apparently attacked by nationalist extremists, described the "unbelievable" scene.
