New Zealand attacks: PewDiePie says he’s ‘sickened’ that shooter mentioned his name

New Zealand attacks: PewDiePie says he’s ‘sickened’ that shooter mentioned his name

Before Friday's attack, New Zealand's deadliest shooting in modern history took place in 1990 in the small town of Aramoana, where a gunman killed 13 people following a dispute with a neighbor.

Bush said that a male in his late 20s has been charged with murder and will appear at the Christchurch court Saturday morning local time. The terror attack had been live-streamed on Facebook and uploaded onto social media sites where it was widely shared before being taken down.

In a 74-page manifesto, believed to have been written by Tarrant, he describes anti-immigrant motives, saying the victims were a "large group of invaders" who he says "seek to occupy my peoples lands and ethnically replace my own people (sic)". However, Bush didn't mention the other people.

Bush said police had found two improvised explosive devices in one auto, a clarification from an earlier statement that there were devices in multiple vehicles.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh cricket team's tour of New Zealand has been called off in the wake of the attack.

She said the focus of New Zealand's security agencies have been monitoring extremism "regardless of where it comes from". In a statement he said: "Our hearts go out to the people of New Zealand following the news of this bad act in Christchurch. There were three in the hallway, at the door leading into the mosque, and people inside the mosque", he said. He walks back into the mosque, where there are at least two dozen people lying on the ground. It is the busiest day for many mosques around the world when Muslims convene for Friday prayers. One person was later released.

Part of the New Zealand shooter's motivation apparently was to have his chaos go viral via live streaming and an online "manifesto" posted on his social media account.

"I saw dead people everywhere".

"He was screaming like get her to the hospital and the ambulance couldn't come in until it was secured so I just got my truck and loaded up him, and his daughter, and this other guy had been shot in the leg, and took them to the hospital", he said.

He has been described by Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison as an "extremist right-wing violent terrorist".

One man, with blood still on his shirt, said in a television interview that he hid from the gunman under a bench and prayed that he would run out of bullets.

Christchurch city council offered a helpline for parents looking for kids attending a mass climate change rally nearby.

New Zealand, with a population of 5 million, has relatively loose gun laws and an estimated 1.5 million firearms, or roughly one for every three people. Several more people were killed in an attack on a second mosque in the city a short time later.

He described Christchurch as a "very peaceful city" that is still getting over the devastating 6.3 magnitude natural disaster that hit in 2011.
