Chicago Muslim groups step up security after New Zealand mosque attacks

Whereas private gun ownership and the number of illegal guns making their way into New Zealand have soared over the past 15 years or so, according to Stuff Limited, Australia was able to take one-fifth of its illegal guns off the streets in just three months by implementing a gun amnesty program in 2017. "We stand shoulder to shoulder with our brothers and sisters in New Zealand".

"While work has been done as to the chain of events that led to both the holding of this gun license and the possession of these weapons, I can tell you one thing right now - our gun laws will change", Ardern said during the press conference.

Asked by a reporter on Friday if he sees an increase globally in the threat of white nationalism, the United States president responded: "I don't really".

The Islamic Association of Raleigh joined world leaders in condemning the attack and what Aukhil cited as the increasingly strident white-supremacist language of politicians in the US and elsewhere.

"I think it's a small group of people that have very, very serious problems, I guess", US President Donald Trump says.

. "I guess if you look at what happened in New Zealand perhaps that's a case, I don't know enough about it yet".

"People started to pass by us with blood stains on their clothes, they were very scared and their voices were trembling, some people could not even speak", restaurant manager Prakash Sapkota, who was near the mosques, told Euronews.

"He acknowledged that and agreed", she said. She said numerous victims were likely refugees who found a home in the country.

Ardern said New Zealand had been placed on its highest security threat level.

Political and Islamic leaders across Asia and the Middle East voiced concern over the targeting of Muslims.

Prime Minister Ardern said the tragic events "can now only be described as a terrorist attack". "1.3 billion Muslims have collectively been blamed for any act of terror".

Law enforcement officials in other cities across the country, including NY and Los Angeles, have also said they are increasing security forces at mosques in response to the shooting.

"People have been killed while they had gathered together to make peace with God and one another, it's a symbol of peace whenever people go for worship", he told CP24 Friday morning.

Pakistan's Foreign Ministry said four Pakistanis were wounded, and Ministry spokesman Mohammad Faisal tweeted that five other Pakistani citizens are missing after Friday's attacks. The social media platform removed the video and removed the suspect's accounts.

Scheer posted to Twitter and Facebook late Thursday evening in Canada as news of the attacks was reported, saying "freedom has come under attack" and mentioning "peaceful worshippers" and a "despicable act of evil". Seven were killed at the Linwood mosque nearby, and one victim passed away at the hospital.

Launch Good, a crowdfunding platform that focuses on the Muslim community, launched a campaign.

One image shared widely was of a cartoon kiwi, the country's national bird, weeping. "This is your home and you should have been safe here" the caption read.
