New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called it one of the country's "darkest days" after dozens were killed at two mosques in Christchurch.

Reflecting on the recent mass shootings that took place at two mosques in New Zealand, Daryle Lamont Jenkins, executive director of the anti-fascist organization One People's Project, told Sputnik that the U.S. right wing "needs to be held accountable" for the attack.

"Frightening experience and please keep us in your prayers", while Mushfiqur Rahim said: "Alhamdulillah Allah save us today while shooting in Christchurch in the mosque.we r extremely lucky.never want to see this things happen again.pray for us".

"London stands with the people of Christchurch in the face of this horrific terror attack", he said.

CNN cites a 2015 study that reported New Zealand had an adjusted rate of about 1 gun death per 100,000 people, while in 2017, the United States has an adjusted rate of 12 gun deaths per 100,000 people.

New Zealand police said 49 people had died. "Many of those affected will be members of our migrant communities - New Zealand is their home - they are us".

He was not on a government watch list in either New Zealand or Australia.

Three men and one woman were in custody and one man had been charged with murder. One person has been arrested and charged with murder.

Genuis, an Edmonton-area MP, and fellow Conservative MP Kelly Block of Saskatchewan were to co-host the reception with Cox, who has shown support for Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and has said she believes Muslims are trying to destroy Western democracies with Shariah law. "To move forward as a world, we need to recognize diversity as a source of strength, and not a threat".

"People feel that it's just okay to just routinely attack and demonize Muslims simply because of 9/11 or just their own personal hatred, and it manifests into what we saw last night", he said.

Afghanistan's Taliban movement - Islamic militants who carry out near-daily attacks on Afghan security forces - also condemned the shooting rampage, calling it an "unforgivable crime".

Western leaders from Donald Trump to Angela Merkel expressed solidarity with the people of New Zealand and deplored what the White House called an "act of hate". His office said on Twitter that Israel mourns the murder of innocent worshippers, condemns the assault and sends its condolences to bereaved families.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said the attack was a result of Muslims being demonized.

National Deputy Director of the Australian Institute of International Affairs Dr Bryce Wakefield said New Zealand's gun laws "were known for being particularly lax".

He said one of his friends had been shot in the arm and he also witnesses a shooter changing his gun during the attack.

He said his desire for violence grew when he arrived in France, where he said he was offended by the sight of immigrants in the cities and towns he visited.

A licence must be obtained, however New Zealand is one of the few countries where most individual weapons don't have to be registered.
