Christchurch terror attack: Four terrorists, including an Australian in custody, says Police

Mass shooting at mosque in Christchurch

The New Zealand Prime Minister condemned those behind the act, giving "the strongest possible condemnation of the ideology of the people who did this, " and stating strongly "you may have chosen us but we utterly reject and condemn you".

Morrison said the shooting in Christchurch was carried out by "an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist" who was an Australian-born citizen.

Meanwhile, cities around the USA are boosting security at mosques ahead of Friday's prayer services.

Ten people were later killed at the Linwood Islamic Centre, four miles (6km) away.

New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern held a press conference about the shootings in the country's east coast city of Christchurch, referring to the incident as "one of New Zealand's darkest days".

Other celebs focused on "white supremacy" - and some tried to draw a line between racism and Trump.

She added the majority of those affected are either migrants, immigrants or refugees, saying it can only be described as a "terrorist attack".

What just happened? YouTube star Felix "Pewdiepie" Kjellberg says he is "absolutely sickened" to learn that one of the perpetrators in the attacks on two New Zealand mosques mentioned his name during a livestream of the shooting.

A man in his late twenties was charged with murder and will appear in court on Saturday morning, police confirmed.

Three of the arrests are believed to be directly related to the attacks, with the fourth's involvement still being determined.

A shooter killed dozens of people in a New Zealand mosque and left behind a manifesto that endorsed a variety of causes on both sides of the political aisle.

At least one of the killers was an Australian man. The footage has since been removed from social media platforms.

He reportedly told the police he was acting in "self defense".

Police said the investigation extended 360 kilometers (240 miles) to the south, where homes in Dunedin were evacuated around a "location of interest".

Far-right extremist Tarrant published a chilling 73-page manifesto before carrying out the massacre.




According to reports, a Gym manager Tracey Gray has confirmed the man who filmed the attack and streamed it online was Tarrant. "He worked in our program that offered free training to kids in the community, and was very passionate about that".

"Don't give the POS NZ shooter what he wants", Donald Trump Jr. wrote on Twitter.

"My warmest sympathy and best wishes goes out to the people of New Zealand after the awful massacre in the Mosques", he tweeted. It has been rebuilding since an quake in 2011 killed 185 people and destroyed many downtown buildings. "We stand in solidarity with the people of New Zealand and their government against this vicious act of hate".

New Zealand's National Security Threat has been raised from low to high for the first time in its history.

He said the suspected IEDs found attached to the attackers´ vehicles had been made safe by the military.

Bush clarified that police had found two improvised explosive devices in one auto.

My warmest sympathy and best wishes goes out to the people of New Zealand after the disgusting massacre in the Mosques.

"This goes to the seriousness of the situation", Bush said. We are mobilising resources nationally and support is being brought into the District.

"They are us. The person who has perpetuated this violence against us is not", Arden added.

Christchurch, a relatively small city in the south of New Zealand, hit global headlines in 2011 when it was struck by a deadly quake.

"Our hearts are broken over today's awful tragedy in New Zealand", YouTube, which is operated by Google, said in a Twitter posting.

Police also had the mosques locked down.

The third cricket test was canceled, New Zealand Cricket said later.

Another shooting takes place at a mosque in Linwood, 3.5 miles to the east.

"Entire team got saved from active shooters!"
