Christchurch Shootings: Brenton Tarrant Appears in Court

Christchurch Shootings: Brenton Tarrant Appears in Court

People from at least half a dozen countries and young children were among the 50 people killed in shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, on Friday.

Officers arrested two others following the attacks and are now working to establish whether they had any involvement in the terror attacks against the Muslim community in New Zealand.

"He will certainly face the justice system of New Zealand for the terrorist attack that he has committed here", Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told reporters. She also says New Zealand will make "weekly compensation" available to victims' dependents on an ongoing basis.

Tarrant had posted a jumbled 74-page anti-immigrant manifesto online before the attacks and apparently used a helmet-mounted camera to broadcast live video of the slaughter.

A second survivor, Faisal Sayed, said: "If that hadn't happened, many more would have died and I wouldn't be here now".

Bush also said that two people arrested around the time suspect Brenton Harrison Tarrant was apprehended are not believed to have been involved in the attacks on two mosques Friday.

Forty-one people were killed at the Al Noor mosque, seven at a mosque in the Linwood neighborhood and one died in hospital, police said.

A further 50 people were injured in the attack, Commissioner Bush said, and 36 remain in the Christchurch Hospital, twelve of whom are in the Intensive Care Unit in a critical condition.

In it, he identifies himself as a 28-year-old white man, born in Australia, and lists the white nationalists who have inspired him. "They may take our innocence but we will show the world the meaning of love and compassion", said one note taped to flowers left on a road divider. "We stand with the Muslim community".

One man who said he was at the Al Noor mosque told media the gunman burst into the mosque as worshippers were kneeling for prayers.

Abdul Hakim, 56, of Auckland, was among many who had flown in to help. Facebook, Twitter and Google scrambled to take down the video, which was widely available on social media for hours after the bloodbath.

Ardern said she had asked authorities to look into whether there was any activity on social media or elsewhere that could have alerted them ahead of the attack.

Ardern said the main suspect was a licensed gun owner who used five weapons during his rampage, including two semi-automatic weapons and two shotguns.

'I think something must have changed in him during the years he spent travelling overseas, ' Gray told national broadcaster ABC. "I was very happy to hear the Prime Minister's comments this morning that there will be a change in the gun law".
