  • Mass shooting at mosque in Christchurch

What else do we know about the attack?

One gunman, who is thought to be Australian, livestreamed the shooting on Facebook using what is believed to be a head-mounted camera. "At this point in time we should never make assumptions", he said.

Commissioner Bush said three other people were taken into custody, but one may have had nothing to do with the incident.

"It is such a sad and devastating reminder of the evil that can be ever present about us", Morrison said of the attacks.

In what is being called as "one of New Zealand's darkest days", mass shootings at two mosques in NZ full of worshippers attending Friday prayers killed about 40 people.

Facebook said it had removed the shooter's Facebook and Instagram accounts and deleted the video.

Bangladesh Cricket Board spokesman Jalal Yunus said most of the team had gone to the mosque by bus and were about to go inside when the incident took place.

At least 49 people have died and 20 remain injured after two targeted shootings at Mosques in New Zealand on Friday. "We continue to utilize every possible resource to resolve the situation", Bush said, adding that all mosques in the country had been asked to shut their doors.




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

Indonesia's foreign minister says six Indonesians were at the Al Noor Mosque in New Zealand when a shooting occurred and three of them escaped.

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.

"I'm also anxious about New Zealand because NZ is one of the most peaceful countries in the world, very good reputation so that image can be affected by this kind of activity".

A social media account had also posted a number of pictures of a semi-automatic weapon covered in the names of historical figures, many of whom were involved in the killing of Muslims.

Police keep watch at a park across the road from a a mosque in central Christchurch, New Zealand, Friday, March 15, 2019.

Schools have gone into lockdown and people have been urged to stay indoors. "Clearly, what has happened here is an extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence".

"I saw dead people everywhere. They are us. The person who perpetuated this violence is not", she said.
