Three of Detained After Christchurch Shooting Have No Links to Attack

Footage of the attack live streamed on Facebook showed the gunman entering the mosque and shooting randomly at people.

He was believed in the Al Noor mosque near Hedley Park at the time of the shootings. "Just because a lot of people are killed on the roads we don't ban cars". No images have emerged from there.

She said by the time police had been made aware of the email, emergency calls were already being received "and somebody was then taken into custody 36 minutes later".

"He will certainly face the justice system of New Zealand for the terrorist attack that he has committed here", Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told reporters.

The email, which was sent to a general email address for Ms Ardern's office, was also sent to the office of the Opposition Leader, the Speaker, and the parliamentary tour desk, along with a number of media outlets.

Tarrant was not known to the authorities, Bush said, and had no previous convictions. That makes New Zealand's per capita rate of gun ownership higher than Australia's, but still far below the U.S., where there is more than one gun per person. Thirty- six people were still being treated on Saturday, 11 of whom remained in intensive care. An eighth victim died at the hospital.

"Hi guys how are you. He liked to do marriages - he married me and my wife", said Sulaman Abdul, who fled Somalia as a refugee in 1993 for New Zealand. Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday wrote to his New Zealand counterpart expressing his deepest condolences to the bereaved families of the victims.

This senseless attack is an affront to the people of Christchurch and New Zealand, and the broader Muslim community.

"Had it provided details that could have been acted on immediately it would have been, but unfortunately there were no such details in the email".

Christchurch residents have paid tribute to victims of the mosque attacks as families waited for authorities to release the bodies for burials on Sunday.

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

"We understand these procedures take time".

Her stance was welcomed by New Zealand Police Commissioner Mike Bush.

The 28-year-old Australian is being held on a murder charge after 50 people were killed and 34 others injured in a horrific massacre at two Christchurch mosques.

"It was disturbing", she says.

Ardern has said Tarrant was a licensed gun owner who bought the five guns used in the crimes legally.

Arden used some of her strongest language yet about gun control, saying that laws need to change and "they will change".

The shootings have raised new questions about violence being disseminated online.

Gun City has been contacted for comment. Story continues after video.

"The United States strongly condemns the attack in Christchurch".

Australia imposed stricter rules on gun control and bought back firearms after a mass shooting left 35 people dead and 23 injured at a cafe in Port Arthur, Tasmania, in 1996.

The youngest person missing and feared dead is three years old, Greenhill tells NPR's Weekend Edition.

The Pacific Islands Association of non-governmental Organisations (PIANGO) also expressed its "heartfelt grief and sorrow" over the attacks.

US President Donald Trump, who condemned the attack as a "horrible massacre", was praised by the accused gunman in a manifesto posted online as "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose".
