No images have emerged from the second mosque.

A counter-terrorism expert has said a military-style assault rifle allegedly used in Friday's Christchurch massacre has never seen before in Australia and New Zealand. "The offender was mobile, there were two other firearms in the vehicle that the offender was in, and it absolutely was his intention to continue with his attack", Ardern told reporters in Christchurch on Saturday.

Ardern's chief press secretary Andrew Campbell told CNN that the email in a "generic" email account maintained by staff, and was not seen by the Prime Minister. Regardless of whether terrorist attacks are perpetrated by white or Islamist extremists, their narratives must not be enabled through whataboutery.

A cricket match between New Zealand and Bangladesh scheduled to start Saturday was canceled after the Bangladesh cricket team had a narrow escape.

New Zealand's Police Commissioner Mike Bush said four people - three men and a woman - had been taken into custody.

Robertson said a 4-year-old girl who had been transferred to an Auckland hospital was in critical condition and 11 patients who remained in Christchurch were also critically wounded. One victim died in hospital.

Nearly 50 people were treated at Christchurch Hospital for gunshot wounds, including young children. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families".

"My kids are scared, you know".

The attacks in two mosques in central Christchurch killed at least 49 people and injured 48 others.

Ms Arden stated the deadly attacks was one of New Zealand's "darkest days" and vowed to change the country's current gun laws.

Survivor Syed Mazharuddin told the New Zealand Herald that he was praying with about 60 to 70 people at the Linwood mosque when he heard gunshots.

The victims of Friday's shooting included immigrants from Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Indonesia, and Malaysia. "I'm not sure how to deal with this".

One man will appear at a Christchurch court on Saturday.

"But I guess there are little things that lots of people can do to just express friendship rather than fear with Muslim friends, and neighbours and colleagues - so I just took one little action". "Hopefully she will be so much better", he said.

"As a Muslim, we have to be positive". None of the bodies had yet been released due to the investigation, leaving families unable to bury their dead within the 24 hours customary in Islam.

Two of the guns were semi-automatic weapons and two were shotguns, she said, before telling media members that the attack would have an impact on gun laws in the country.

The New Zealand premier said that he had been in possession of a "Category A" gun licence obtained in 2017.

The New Zealand premier was showered with enormous praises internationally for the gesture, which made it clear that New Zealand stood by the Muslim community that was the centre of Friday's horrifying terror attacks rooted in racial as well as religious hatred. Police are trying to determine to what extent, if any, they were involved in the attack. The AR-15 was used at Port Arthur, as well as a number of high-profile mass shootings in the United States.

Like the wider Muslim community in Christchurch, Egypt-born AbdelHalim is struggling to come to terms with the violence wrought upon worshippers this week as he waits to bury the dead.

I felt the need to come out and stand in solidarity with people who were remembering the people who were killed and injured in New Zealand; to stand with my community, the Muslim community, at a time when we feel very vulnerable - when we feel like we've been punched in the gut in a big way.

In it, he says he was inspired by mass killer Anders Breivik, who killed 77 people in Norway in 2011.
