Jacinda Ardern said the gunman a 28-year-old Australian obtained a gun licence in November 2017 Attacks on two Christchurch mosques left at least 49 dead on March 15 with one gunman- identified as an Australian extremist- apparently livestreaming

Wearing a white prison suit, Tarrant appeared handcuffed and barefoot. He will be in custody until April 5, according to the High Court in Christchurch.

People from at least half a dozen countries and young children were among the 49 people killed in shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, on Friday. The camera attached to his head recording the massacre follows the barrel of his weapon, like some macabre video game. The attack on the Al Noor and Linwood mosques has prompted an outpouring of grief and deep shock in this usually peaceful coun. No images have emerged from there.

Tarrant on Saturday was charged with only one count of murder, though Prime Minister Ardern assured the public that more charges will be added as the judicial process continues.

A spokesman said the email did not describe the specific incident and that there was "nothing in the content or timing that would have been able to prevent the attack".

"Just around the entrance door there were elderly people sitting there praying and he just started shooting at them", Mazharuddin told Sky.

Bush said police did not believe that three other people arrested on Friday were involved in the attack.

"Lilik has been a valued part of our engineering team in Christchurch for 16 years, but he first got to know the team even earlier when he worked with our aircraft engineers in a previous role overseas", Air New Zealand Chief Executive Christopher Luxon said in a statement. He said he survived by played dead, but was desperate to know what happened to his friends who were there with him. Thirty- six people were still being treated on Saturday, 11 of whom remained in intensive care.

Police have not released the names of those killed in the attack, but charging documents listed one of the victims as Salwa Mirwan Mohamad.

Another 50 people were wounded in the shooting sprees, with around 36 still in hospital on Sunday.

The video, which was live-streamed on Facebook, has since been removed from the platform.

"Hi guys how are you".

Defending her team, she said that there was very little time to react to the message in the manifesto' "The pocket to react was slim, very very slim", she said while vowing to the kin of all victims who have been killed.

Ardern confirmed that the suspected gunman had not been on the radar of any intelligence agencies for extremism

Pacific Islands Forum Chair and president of Nauru Baron Waqa expressed his "deepest condolences" to the people and government of New Zealand on what he called a sad day for Christchurch and a sad day for the region.

She also signalled that if convicted, he would serve his sentence in New Zealand.

Aziz said: "He gets into his vehicle and I just got the gun and threw it on his window like an arrow and blasted his window".

Victims came from across the Muslim world, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Turkey, Afghanistan and Bangladesh. Muslims account for just over 1 percent of New Zealand's population.

"I'm not sure how to deal with this. Forgiving is going to take time", Omar Nabi, whose father Haji Daoud Nabi was gunned down, told reporters outside the Christchurch court. "The people of New Zealand are in our thoughts and prayers".

A worshipper was pictured inconsolably wandering with his tunic turned red in the street outside the Linwood Avenue mosque.

"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".

Ardern has said Tarrant was a licensed gun owner who bought the five guns used in the crimes legally. New Zealand has fewer restrictions on rifles or shotguns than many countries, while handguns are more tightly controlled.

"We can not be deterred from the work that we need to do on our gun laws", Ardern said.

"There is one charge of murder brought at the moment, it is reasonable to assume that there will be others", the presiding judge noted.

One person at the second mosque was being hailed for distracting and confronting the shooter, preventing further deaths.
